The chair form became the subject matter for this series in a very unusual manner. The compositions developed through taking the chair form apart and putting it back together in a different configuration and also adding various shapes in non conforming locations. For example adding additional legs and supports even though they are unnecessary makes the chair still look functional but uncertain whether you should sit on it.
