In tangrams puzzles you're given seven simple geometric shapes, yet applying various layouts will create over six thousand different configurations. This is how I approach design—realizing there are many opportunities to create a unique form utilizing the most basic geometries and materials. It’s how you link the pieces together that creates the form, yet if you relocate one piece it changes the composition and creates unexpected possibilities.
