Bound and Proof

I really admire Christo’s work and was experimenting in graduate school with bound objects. More than anything else it might be more indicative of where my emotions where – tied up. The odd thing is that, much like a baby in a bunting, I found comfort in the tight wrapping. Bound was the first piece I did of this nature and Proof was the last. In Proof I was thinking about fragility as well as still enjoying how numbers animate objects.
