Leaning Matrices critic: Mable Wilson

quick project description: The program is divided into four bodies that address the

studio title: particles, density, repetition

street in different ways but are then fragmented into parts that are interwoven. A

site: Center and Howard St., Chinatown

series of matrix studies produced lessons about degrees of freedom within a striated

program: drawing center

system. The result is a centralized building that distributes into specific activities yet shows their integral relationship with each other.
