As such, axonometry can look anomalous to untrained eyes--disorienting because it takes the flatness of the drawing surface too literally.
Simpson's axonometry is more intuitive than technical, a personal but diligent system.
Thus Corrugated Drawing--like its cardboard peers and many sculptures after it--literalizes the terms of Simpson's preceding works on paper, realizing in three dimensions the shallow space constituted by the obliquely angled, parallel lineation of axonometry.
Literalness is key here, not least regarding the impression given by axonometry that what is recorded literally might not be apprehended literally.
This application could be very useful for lecturers and students, because it presents the transition from axonometry in perspective and back in the shortest time, and at the same time it explains the relationship between them.
It passed under sections 38, 70 and 74 of CMP: limited competition on "Sketch +" including the presentation of a model of a axonometry and perspective.
Sofie Thorsen's recent work evokes parallel complexity, exploring axonometry through wall drawings and panels in a series of "Screens Within Screens," 2014.
Axonometry was a revelation for modernist artists such as El Lissitzky because it transformed the way three-dimensional space could be translated onto a two-dimensional ground, placing infinity at the center of geometric projection, rather than at a vanishing point.
But just as a grid is anomalous to axonometry, in these screens within screens, spatial and visual content remain radically inconclusive.
Such gestures recall the dizzying axonometry of El Lissitzky's publications, but if Lissitzky revealed the inescapably ideological nature of form while disrupting traditional readerly and perspectival orientation (as Yve-Alain Bois has shown) with distinctly revolutionary aims, Yokoo's psychedelic rotations take on a different valence.
