Crystal Ark, 2011
ink and colored lead on drafting film, 30x30”

Crystal Ark follows up on Positive I.D.  Both began with the most perfect grid I could possibly draw.  Where I found perfect squares, I “pulled them up” as dimensional forms.  Where half a square was perfect, I pulled up one level to make a diamond shape.  Where both halves were perfect, I pulled up two levels to make a pyramid shape.  Imperfect squares stayed flat.  Result: a map of perfection?  A map of persistence?  Or maybe just a map of concentration?  Or all of the above.
