a word gifted to me by my German friend, Kisa. Saur
to describe the pile of line at kiters' feet
and my favorite found drawings.
The ones below were collected at the Cervia International Kite Festival in April of 2010.
Anna Rubin's delicate monofilament
Ohye Makoto's Edo kiteline(synthetic braid)?
such surprising angularly
stored on a bamboo winder in a rotating figure eight.
Alessia Marrocu's rokoko battle line
she explained it never gets cut (truth, it survived the battle just fine)
before lift off she'd pick it up, shake it and flip it before dropping it again to make it stay all in one mass, a loose tangle.
Kisa.'s dyneema line.
