"Wall Work" was a solid wall of cardboard cubes tied together with yarn. It was the first time that I had exposed the 'ends' of the boxes where the overlapping flaps created a greater variation of colour. As usual, the arrangements of colour were random, as was the 'orientation' of the overlapping ends. It was also just a single layer of boxes with no corners or turns, so was a bit of an experiment as to whether it would stay upright throughout the exhibition as it depended entirely on its own balance.
I exhibited alongside it "Wall Work-Yarn" - a crocheted piece constructed from the discarded yarn of previous cube works.
