  • There is no thought given here to how the grain in the different pieces of plywood work in relationship to each other
    NOR IN RELATIONSHIP TO THE WHOLE ENVIRONMENT
    The result is a conflict between what the space and spaces are and the intense business of the grain of the plywood. One cancels out the other as neither is dominant.
