The final piece will present the viewer with a theoretical over-view of space and area entitlement through mathematical means.

The work questions the nature of group exhibitions, eradicating the fear of presenting your work and the prospect of infringing on other peoples. The mathematical approach that I will adopt when presenting the works, takes away all of the elements I consider daunting when exhibiting, as the nature of mathematics is very factual and difficult to contend with.

With Usable/Unusable Holden Gallery, the number of pupils exhibiting and the space drove the work, but the pupils became mere numbers to aid the resolution and the work became more about the space than a balanced piece that considered everything equally.

This furthers my interest in the work becoming bound, not only by the space, but time and circumstance as well.
