This piece sought to examine the roles of tension and compression through a singular piece of letter paper and some thread. By loosely sewing the paper to itself, a new curved and stable variation of the plane was created. It is important to note that the thread is not attached or knotted in place. The basic relationship between the thread and paper is sufficient to maintain the form.
Another result of this relationship is the new found potential for light. The paper and string, otherwise two-dimensional, now create space that light can be cast across. Shadows produced by the spans of string curve according to the surface of the plane behind them.
