About the Rug

The design of 'Off—Axis' originated in a time when the artist focused on the semiotics of medical scans and x-rays. 'Off—Axis' derives from a series of related scans of a hand, copied time and again, resulting in a sequence of mutating organisms.  In this work, the scientific methods of processing visual data are carefully balanced with the delicate softness and intimacy of the human body.
