"Where the drawing ends, that's where the tension begins" said Akkerman and this intriguing work shows what he meant. The square isn't square because some of the lines end before reaching the borders of the drawing. But some of the blank parts of the quadrangle aren't completely untrodden. Close examination reveals erased or sketch lines.
