Are choices as binary as we normally think of them? What is an alternative and what you don't even consider at first?
This print belongs to the first series: "One concept, One print". As a designer we are taught to construct, to build, to innovate but with this series I wanted to leverage the creative potential to do the opposite: destroy, deconstruct, critique. Each print of this series started with a concept which was then deconstructed into a visual.
Are choices as binary as we normally think of them? What is an alternative and what you don't even consider at first? Are the several alternatives conditioned by others? Are you always looking for a safety net? These were some of the questions I explored while creating this piece.

A particularity about this design is that it was accomplished using 3ds max and a cloth simulation to achieve the effect of the net falling. This was then transferred to illustrator and finally carved on the block.
