The process of integrating the first three wood blocks into a base block by creating at least one void.  The main goal was to create three blocks of four pieces each.  By movement and shifts, spaces and shapes start to form.

The common goal for each of the three blocks was to create unity throughout four pieces of each block.  By interlocking the shapes to fit together as one continuous block conveying movement through the pieces coming together as one.

By blending three sections into each other, the blocks create movement. I incorporated a channel that flows from one void to the other end void creating a pathway along each piece of the block.  By subtle ways of shifting pieces forward and backward, a path is formed and spaces evolve along the way.
