|Covariance (2011) (Detail)|
These photographs document the beginning of a new series of work, provisionally called Covariance. The work is concerned with the interruption of a series of lines as they encounter a raised surface, in this case a canvas on the studio wall. The lines are made from electrical tape, stretched across the wall and over the canvas, which interferes with the lines' passage across the flat surface.
