The Transparency aims to create abstract spaces based on the rhythm of the body. The first step was to measure different parts of the body, like arm length or knee circumference. Then, these numbers became units of length that, when rotated by an angle, looped and created a form. This form was then scaled twice, and it's most important sides were chosen. These then became the top and bottom plates of the model.When the bottom was rotated by 90 degrees, and the corresponding lines between these were joined, new surfaces and spaces began to appear.
