Transforming the Corner: Planar Dance 1' (a set of 4 drawings)
In this work I am looking at a corner in a purely geometrical sense: as the point in a construction which falls at the intersection of two or three planes. I have explored the mutation of these corners through a series of drawings conceived in the manner of an animation – a spatial story where in each successive frame (drawing) the corners and the planes vibrate, dance, twist and turn and transform into another form over the progression of the series. In a sense, it is a geometrical metamorphosis of the corner.
