These drawings explore the generative and transformative possibilities of orthographic projection and freehand drawing techniques. In addition to describing initial geometries, the act of drawing is used as a way to invent new geometries. After exploring several techniques, one technique is chosen, reinvented, and then reconceived as a machine for drawing. Through a process of input and output, the drawing machine is used to merge geometries and describe the resultant in a potentially infinite number of ways.
