This body of work began as an opportunity to riff on the blind adjustment series. Translating forms from three dimensional works into two dimensional shapes, these pieces share a fluidity in design though a rigidity in the fixed plan in which they are placed. Each work chronologically informs the next, medium producing bi-product for another work.
