Description: An assemblage of nine similarly-shaped elements that are to be arranged casually on the floor and against the wall. This work was a rebellion against the harsh geometry of Minimalism. The work is characterized by a flexible, fluid material and smooth, rounded-almost anatomical or botanical, yet architectural forms.
