Scaffolding uncovers a visual collection of printed grids, patterns, and geometric frameworks from our constructed and natural environments. Objects in our typical environments unfold into a familiar, almost invisible backdrop for our lives.

Grids of space and time are everywhere, even if we cannot see them on the surface. They create modules and patterns that are easy to follow. Often in blue on ruled composition paper, bright orange on a pad of vellum paper, white on cutting mats, air between poorly installed drywall, or metal to break a window into a set of smaller views. They dissect and image, line, floor, and/or ceiling while filtering a changing view. They give rhythm under the stillness. This mismatch of grids can be quiet, soft, indifferent.

This is a second edition of 125 books.
