DESCRIPTION:  Sarah Sze’s laser cut sculpture, Eye Chart, is a playful exploration with the architecture of sight. A simple eye chart is manipulated into a miniature grove of letters as if created for a child’s toy train set.
"I am interested in an object or image that plays with the state of its own existence; for example, a pad of paper that is carefully printed rather than mass produced, or a collage that seems to be falling apart as much as coming together, in other words, its parts are holding the picture plane together and yet still maintaining their identity (as a rock or an envelope)." (Quote from Sarah Sze: Infinite Line exhibition, Asia Society).
