The simple shape of a square in white neon is 'folded' at 90 degrees and placed in dialogue with its reflection. This allows the lines created by the neon, as well as its reflection, to adapt and change based on the viewers position. From one perspective the folded square and its reflection combine to make the complete shape of an unfolded square.
