Community Structure, Study #9

This community study is not as complex as #10. It is more a brevity on evolution of a specific form. Three sections within one continuous body catalog format traditions of crochet. The center section collected individual doily forms, more precisely, the centers or beginnings of doily forms, circles. It is book ended by an allover pattern, another standard crochet form, which binds circle forms in a quite different way, and a border pattern, also a traditional crochet format, that creates a community of circle in its negative spaces. Individual members (circles/holes) of each section, bound by their relationship to the others in their group, in terms of the possibility of individual expression of form, reacted differently to the resin application, thereby creating three very different social structures.
