Freedom Versus Control is an exploration of the creative process which is a constant battle between freedom and control. Various elements of the roll of paper visualize expressive, loose, and free gestures. On the other hand, other areas demonstrate structure, control, and attention to detail. Overall, the result is a collaboration between meticulous detail and an unconscious, intuitive approach to artistic production.
