This study aims to discover a more explicit or accessible way to interpret and navigate inconsistencies and “wrongness” in the creation of meaning. In researching cultural perceptions on the topic, I have learned that there is a long history of embracing dissonance to evolve new structures and deconstruct conventional forms.

This study dismantles binary oppositions as it relates to perceiving and interpreting, order and chaos, dynamic and stillness, opening and closing to explore the space between.
