Willa Downing, Artist _______________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________ Geometry of the Real World

These pieces were inspired by a set of small booklets, Geometry of the Real World, that I had created using images and words idiosyncratically selected from a high school geometry textbook. From the accidental mash-up of illustrations and didactic language emerged something more poetic. I explore the idea of ‘geometry’ and ‘poetry’ as ways to experience and understand the world.
