Visual Description : Abstract plexiglass box construction featuring sections of curved, overlapping, coloured plexiglass and what appears to be a gray and white print in the background. The coloured plexi sections are mounted to the surface of a sheet of clear plexi below the top sheet. This underlying sheet has a cluster of thin, adhered, clear plexi cylindrical sections arranged vertically. It appears that the coloured sections are mounted to these cylindrical sections at the left and right edges. The print below the plexi is abstract with dotted wave and cloud-like patterns at the top and bottom with blank space in between. A medium-sized, blue pencil grid appears over the top of the entire print. The reverse side of the object features a single layer of clear plexi with a similar cluster of vertical sections as on the front. The coloured pieces of plexi resemble the letter 'C' in appearance and are each different: blue, purple, green, red, orange, and yellow.
