Once stripped of their "usefulness", I ask, "how do these objects or materials grow, now that they have lost their original function?". I imagine that the resulting components have their own bodies and though accumulation are intent upon working together to grow an even larger body. As in nature, where specific mathematical principles provide structure while allowing countless variations, I create strict boundaries that insure a pattern, but within which the outcome is ultimately unknown....
