Into this leaps the Woods item. color unexpectedly pronounces an odd set of twirling wraps and shattering planes; once more there are these tantalising strings or tubes and shards of a fabric that's definitely freer than that of the encompassing construction. Peter Wilson, Water residence, Shinkenchiku Residential layout festival, Tokyo, 1976. Black pencil on tracing paper with colored accents on A3 paper.
