The exercise creates abstract spaces based on the rhythm of the designer’s 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 rotated, looped and created a form. This form was then rotated and scaled twice to create an overlap between the scales. When the bottom was plate was rotated by 90 degrees in relation to the top, new potential spaces began to appear.
