Permutations is the exploration of the question, "How many ways can you can arrange four objects?". The print invites the audience to playfully notice and wonder about patterns and structures.

Silkscreen, 4 color print, on paper

This print was created as a part of the Parallel Universe exhibit at the Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago, IL. There are an infinite amount of parallel universes, making it impossible to capture each scenario on an 11"x14" piece of paper. Instead, as mathematicians do, I examined a simpler case: four unique decisions to be made at four unique points in time. Each set becomes its own universe, and every possible universe is represented on the page.
