Nature abhors them.
But we create them.
I was in downtown LA earlier this week and took the chance to walk across the Fourth Street Bridge, It wasn’t high, but it made me dizzy.
It was as if the world had been converted to straight lines. Everything from the shape of the skyscrapers, to the train tracks, roads, power lines, and the Los Angeles River itself had been forced to follow a simple set of geometrical rules. Ironically, the only sinuous line was that of the tyre treads that had found their way into the river bed to cavre doughnuts.
