During COVID-19 closures, with no access to the maker space where I use a laser cutter, I began working the acrylic sheet with hand tools and using materials left over from previous projects. I made a few pieces that combine acrylic sheet scraps with paper gift bags. These small pieces still depend on numerical values to determine their formal structure, placement of line, shape, and color relationships. Originally inspired by the color and texture of the orange bag, Oddment: a|mending combines two words and their concepts. The idea and process of mending or being repaired and that of being amended or modified. Formal decisions are based on 91634135955, a sequence from pi.
