A technique of depicting volumes and spatial relationships on a flat surface can be referenced to the viewer's perspective or 'point of view'. As the viewer begins to perceive the objects it becomes apparent that no two perspectives yield the same visual effect. For the juxtaposition of the light filtering foils in combination with the glass surfaces can create moments of deep density or contrasting transparency and all the variations there within.

The Perspective objects are composed of reduced forms to create the simplest of volumes, and yet self-supporting. Here everything works in threes. For the ability to impede, lights characteristics while passing though a surface can be changed up to three times. Therefor the triangle has become the core.

In the case of Perspective no. 2 the work itself has the ability to move, rotating one or both of the circular discs reveals changes in transparency.

The object thrives in combination with ambient light, the immateriality of light can be made physical through the use of the filters; as light waves move vertically and horizontally, the user can therefor play with the ability to block these wavelengths and in a way make light a tangible material.
