I’ll admit it: I don’t get it.
I’m not sure what to make of the quote. I’m not sure what to make of the imagery. But I like it.
I’ll just think out loud here for a bit. We’ve gone red and stayed red since volley 4. Yeah, there’s that eyegrinding yellow background here, but the red dominates. Cross-sections of a pyramid tomb. The recurring theme of geometry. I like the way the red quote and red circle bracket the pyramid diagrams. Should we be reading something into the pyramids? Death? The afterlife, and thus, the infinite? Or are they simply a triangle and square?
What to make of that lonely little “north” pointer in the center? For some reason, that’s the element my eyes keep going to.
Overall, I can’t help but feel this shot got away from Thomas a little. Weaver’s minimalist drop shot on the prior volley might have thrown Thomas off-balance. Technical point: I suspect the judges will dock Thomas half a point for the hinky apostrophe in “art’s”.
