Starting with the Dropper’s Loop, a common fishing knot, a set of operations from material to spatial to architectonic executed the transformation of the knot from rope to paper, from two-dimensional to three-dimensional, from single module to mass and aggregation, to function structure and operable aperture, and to engender space. This transformation also gave rise to a personal reinvestigation of the design process - asking the impossible proving to be a viable path toward realizing architecture. In this process, the knot transformed into a theatre for giant marionettes.
