“The Elements drawings are in a sense metaphors for scale and for time (the other dimension of space). Like mathematical systems, they are elements, essences, reproducible at any size. They can be used in the building in Tokyo, in a London street, on the walls of a gallery or as tiny prints. Like found objects they are transportable; but the experience of the works is specific, rooted in a particular time and place.” Caroline Collier

The Elements drawings are a series of ink drawings for 36 Elements: Glass Wall, 2001, a 50 ft high structural glass wall for the Marunouchi Building in Tokyo with architects Mitsubishi Jisho Sekkei Inc.
