AN IMPROVISED EVENT (with two guests):

GUEST #1:Anthi Kosma

”The indetermination of the lines does not come up to be an opaque background. Nevertheless, there is a distance between the lines – an adventurous one and non regular- that permits penetration until the depth of the surface, permitting a certain transparency to this indefinite impression. Lines in contact-not an absolute one. And maybe, it is this distance between lines, that seems to be the matter of drawing and practicing in the field of architecture. Being and moving between lines.”

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ad Hoc is a Latin phrase meaning “for this”. It generally signifies a solution designed for a specific problem or task, non-generalizable, and not intended to be able to be adapted to other purposes (compare a priori). Common examples are organizations, committees, and commissions created at the national or international level for a specific task. In other fields the term may refer, for example, to a military unit created under special circumstances, a tailor-made suit, a handcrafted network protocol, or a purpose-specific equation. Ad hoc can also mean makeshift solutions, shifting contexts to create new meanings, inadequate planning, or improvised events.

In science and philosophy, ad hoc means the addition of extraneous hypotheses to a theory to save it from being falsified. Ad hoc hypotheses compensate for anomalies not anticipated by the theory in its unmodified form. Scientists are often skeptical of theories that rely on frequent, unsupported adjustments to sustain them. Ad hoc hypotheses are often characteristic of pseudoscientific subjects. Ad hoc hypotheses are not necessarily incorrect, however. An interesting example of an apparently supported ad hoc hypothesis was Albert Einstein’s addition of the cosmological constant to general relativity in order to allow a static universe. Although he later referred to it as his “greatest blunder,” it has been found to correspond quite well to the theories of dark energy.
