Cognition

Observing life, I cannot process the entirety of a three-dimensional form. Instead, I focus on various outlines and shapes throughout a subject. Like plots on a graph, flat planes and contours of attention are layered. In Layers, each point retains its observed depth but is physically separated by vacant space. Curved and angled steel sheets, act as a predictive line between these points. The study of attention is broad, it has brought me a wide range of mediums, aesthetics, and concentrations.
