I used this piece to think about the differences between the space in a painting and the space of my studio walls; this came together very quickly, and helped me embrace a less rigid practice.
The above image is what the canvas looked like while I was using it as a surface to tape up references.
You can see a photo of a screencap from Tron, which I was trying to work through. In the scene, a ship-structure passes through a square shaped plane, and when it comes through the other side, it is only line. As in, it enters the square as a more solid structure, and loses its 'insides' when it passes through. The square itself also has some interesting qualities. This led me to ask:
1) what made the ship solid beforehand- since it exists in a computer game - what does dimensionality mean?
2) What does the square do to the ship?
3) what is the ship after it is 'reduced' by the square?
So, I was thinking about all of these questions and used the loop of text to address the connections between the wood, drawings, spaces, and photos.
