At the experimental Black Mountain College, Rockburne was introduced to mathematics by a professor who saw its principles as a defining force in nature. Mathematical ideas—from set theory to the golden section—have been among her tools ever since. Discussing her personal approach, Rockburne has said, "When I'm working well and am totally focused, I feel as though the work is making itself." This piece, meant to be site–specific, can be expanded or contracted through manipulation of the rolls of paper.
