Lot Essay

There is so much potential in these geometric forms. Its something that I always want to emphasize. From a two-point line to the three points of the triangle, the four points of the square, the five that give you a pentagon, the size that makes a hexagonIve been making drawings and mirror works based on the progression of these forms since the seventies. Sol LeWitt had his squares and cubes.. and Ive had my hexagon. Ive found so much potential in geometry, and I continue to discover more every day. -Monir Farmanfarmaian
