Connections, paths, flow. Paths That Join is about representing these ideas in a simple and poignant way. There is an invisible grid. Points are selected at random, serving as anchors, joints to a whole. Like the five pointed star that you could draw with a stroke of a pen without lifting the nib, the selected points are connected and their order is also random. An arc or a straight path connect any two points. The paths they make pulsate, spreading color into the surrounding pixels. Their arrangements criss-cross or, in other iterations, evoke glyphs and abstract park plans. Their directions are both circular and angular. They are paths that join.
