Paper, Wood
3 x 3 in. (7.6 x 7.6 cm), 4 x 4 in. (10.2 x 10.2 cm)

Spatial Reference is a series of work which explores the conceptual space the mind enters while accessing information. Each piece is intended to foster questions in a similar way that reading or referencing a “book” inspires. Produced for the annual Minneapolis College of Art and Design Art Sale.
