"Most recently I have been using tape and found sheet plastic to construct balloon-like, inflatable forms that slowly deflate and flatten. With these forms I can observe transitions between two- and three-dimensional states, and revel in both. The volumes show a skeleton of seams and become, in part, sculptural diagrams or spatial drawings implying both the anatomy of an object and a flattened abstract network of lines. I am intrigued by the convergence of opposites evident in these forms – parts in relation to the whole, free-play in relation to some governing logic, fluctuation in relation to stasis. Much of my current work aims to capture these opposites without an attempt to reconcile the whole." -Anna Hepler
