Missing Corners began as an exploration of implied form. As the plans of the sculpture overlap, the corners dissolve and the overall dynamic becomes that of a continuum. By imploring movement through parallax, the sculpture explores the correlation of impression and assumption as it asks the mind to fill in the gaps.
