Corners have always presented themselves to me as vertical lines in architectural spaces, without any other connotation attached to it. Technically it is a perpendicular line, which always deceives the viewer to be visually straight, because visually it’s always seen at a slight angle. Since my interest is in responding to straight lines in built environments, I am keen to draw this deception, where I equally understand the law of perspective associated with this deception which makes its visual appearance slightly angled.
The responsive drawings are based on the in between space between reality and deception, and thus creating the space of deception where the viewer questions their own perception. The argument here is the potential of the work to incite the viewer to re orientate themselves in the space, with the intention of converting all the physical corners in the space to curves.
