point and counterpoint, 2008, juxtaposes a line that connects two points with a line that serves as a point of tension. The twine suspends a square on one end while tied to a rock on another end.
What distinguishes the structure suspending a square from the ground and vice versa? They seem part of the same phenomena, i.e. part of the same contingency, as two counter-balanced objects with indistinguishable ends. Structure uses the ground as its principle counter-balance to the extent that it denies clear delineation between itself and the ground.
