DESCRIPTION:  In this work, modern techniques collide with classical shapes and an artisan use of materials. The turning of the lathe is evident this time through the central axis of the seat, the rotation highlighted further with the pulled extended lines of the embroidery - almost comically -like movement in a cartoon sketch. Again in a turn of wit, Brajkovic offers a view of the underside of the seat even though the viewer is standing up straight. He bends perspective like a painter might, but in a three-dimensional way.
