Flattening things out

The process continues.
In morning meeting with my mentor Robert, we decided to cut a box open and splay it out flat . The most amazing thing happened - the composition unfolded as a 2D layout - when it had been created on a 3D form - and in that translation there was something very compelling. I found a way to go around myself or to trick myself. Even I was seeing it for the first time. I cut open a few more just to see what was going to happen.
I have been working toward more accidental effects in the work and this fits in exactly with that concept.
I'm still making the 3D box forms and looking at these flat layouts as a parallel/adjoining project.
I'm still working on the display ideas. I was on to a platform idea and now I am working with a pedestal idea.
Still time.
