Found in Translation

The translation from a painting to a three dimensional object reveals spatial qualities and alignments that would have otherwise been left unseen. The layered analysis of a Pierre Jeanneret painting exposed characteristics indicative of point, line, plane, and volume. A process of rule-based translation and diagrammatic improvisation transformed the layers into three dimensional space. Alignments and misalignments reveal metaphysical origins in the painting. Upon creating a base analysis of the painting, the given rules were applied liberally to form a set of plans. The plans formed the basis for a fully formed three dimensional space. The resultant cube, adherent to the given restraints, is a temporal container of the process as well as a completed iteration of the transformation process itself.
