I used cardboard tubes in this body of work as structure, and container and line. Because tubes are hollow, they are a "skin" or outer shell. In addition, because they are containers, they hold an inner substance or are conduits for energetic forces. Orifices that suggest mouths, ears, vents, funnels and open tubes are the means by which the private interior space merges with the shared public space.
