3-ways is a display of characters at a 1:1 scale.
3-ways is a collection of blank objects with a sense of familiarity.
3-ways is a projection of possibilities at the scale in which they propose to be.

3-ways is not a representation, or a model but is a projection of what is, and what should have been.
3-ways allows for a simultaneous commonality and outlier in the same light.

3-ways is a 3-ways of seeing 3 characters in conversation.

3-Ways consists of 3 canvases lying in wait, suspensefully awaiting words, touches of light and movement. It is a series of objects, all familiar but with purpose removed allowing for a projection of relationships and meaning to be assigned. Each conversation may begin with a familiar if not recognizable voice but will not be tied to it. Each character is allowed its vices, its prejudices of its predispositions, and its acclimations. Landscapes, buildings, graphics, and lines will all be spoken and assigned yet none shall imply the appearance of the other. 3-ways is a conversation in which you are neither the subject nor object but inserted as an ‘other’ awaiting a stabilization of relationships and loyalties.
