Derived from the letter Q, which in itself is a symbol or could be referred to as the challenging letter in the alphabet. It represents a letter (refers to a letter) as well as the actual spiral shape itself, which refers to infinity.

Investigating rhythms and lines of movement, and, as well, ideas of the concrete poetry manifestoes of ‘seeing the word in itself’. Questioning becomes a part of the perception of the piece.
