Artist Statement

This interactive sculpture was derived from two games; tic-tac-toe and the wood block puzzle. Nine triangles mounted on posts functioned as a puzzle. Three discrete images could be formed, and the public was invited to rotate the modules to explore unlimited visual permutations. One set of panels represented the architectural wall behind the unit allowing the sculpture to camouflage itself into the surroundings.
