This piece is about stored metaphysical energy, and in particular creating a situation where the majority of the piece exists both in reality and the mind. The interlocking frames, create a situation where the viewer sees one of the twenty-five drawings but by not allowing them to see the other drawings the viewer must imagine the drawings. When making these process line drawings, I focused on how my artistic process can be enjoyable almost leisurely when working in this manner, but the procedural and repetitious qualities of the work made the piece into an act in penance by rigorously adhering to preconceived rules.
