The painted pieces on paper are acting as "constituents", an ongoing collection of forms that have come from my observations. They accumulate and form different configurations each time I install them. As part of the installation process, I photograph at intervals so the new formation can become part of an ongoing animation.
From the 1989 book, "The Emperor's New Mind" by Roger Penrose:
"If the entire material content of a person were to be exchanged with corresponding particles in the bricks of his house then, in a strong sense, nothing would have happened whatsoever. What distinguishes the person from his house is the pattern of how his constituents are arranged, not the individuality of the constituents themselves."
