A relief sculpture as a self-supporting scrim, taking the form of a common type of baffled suburban fence. Representations of a cabinet, closet door panel, kicked in interior hollow-core door, and pieces of lumber are seamed in to the fence to prop it up. Cracks and other damage have likewise been inlaid into the surface, which is essentially a large piece of unsupported marquetry.
