This piece is made from gray scale paper cut with an Xacto knife. I glued down the pieces with tacky glue, then flattened it with a roller so no edges pop up or pieces fall off. There is 3 different sections in this work with 3 different balance systems applied. The first (from left to right) is vertical or horizontal symmetrical, the middle is horizontal or vertical approximate symmetrical, and the last frame is radial asymmetrical. It took a total of 4 days from start to finish to create this piece. My influence for this design was interstate exit ramps and bridges. The triangles and circles represent cars moving on the roads. I believe I captured the chaos of how these exit ramps are in real life.
