INFLECTED SPACE 36 acknowledgments
Space is the overlapping of perception and experience. Both physical and mental, but not real nor imaginary. A kind of like a third of space, an in-between space. Time in this dimension is a series of the continuous fold. Rhythmic movements of folding, folded and unfolding. No creasing, no limit and nobodies. It is inflected space.
WALK & DRAW I walk, I draw. I stop, I finished. Extraction of percieved elements and moving with the sculptures.

COLLAGES Cutting and tearing of paper. Contrasting tones of grey. Translating the dualistic quality of the pencil to the hardness of the paper texture.
