Connected Dots in Space

Connected Dots in Space

For the show The Value of Nothing, 2021: ‘Connected Dots in Space’ 2020, rigid ink (PLA – biodegradable), modular piece, 30cm x 80cm – height without the adjustable hanging wire.

This piece may evoke an abstract doodle or it could suggest problematic thoughts relentlessly going around in our head. It also reminds me of the flight path of a moth circling a light source. Then ‘the butterfly effect’ comes to mind with the ONE flap of its wing that may have significant repercussions thousands of miles away. Lines are nothing but connected dots, yet much thinking may arise from contemplating them.

These successive loops have been shaped by the throw of a 20-sided dice: Each side corresponds to a specific instruction regarding the size and progression of a new loop.
