Description
Inscriptions/Signature

Two white boards, which were originally one, are held together by archival tape. The upper half of the white board has straight edges on the left side. On the right, the board forms a gradational textured convex-curve, the result of which comes from its removal from the bottom piece. Four distinct lines echo the shape of the curve on the textured surface. The bottom half is the inverse of the upper half.
