Material Correspondence: Circulation is set on the premise that the spatial and social forms of our environment are coincident and reciprocal. In Circulation, two large sculptures made from ripped and crumpled paper are positioned centrally in the gallery to establish conditions for movement and social interaction in relation to their form and materiality. 


Alluding to paper’s involvement in systems of social organization, Edging and Boundary limit the amount of floor space available to walk on and define a narrow circulation space around the perimeter of the gallery. The perceived fragility of the material, the visual complexity of each piece and the reduced circulation space affect a heightened sense of social and bodily awareness. Visitors to the gallery are put into direct contact with one another as they navigate the spaces around the sculptures and between each other.
