The title is the Latin name for a wedge. The presence of a wedge shaped building and the many wedge shapes that comprise the composition made it an obvious choice. In many ways, the wedge is a good symbol for this whole body of work. It contains notions of compositional arrangement, of fitting things together, slotting to make a tight fit. On its own, placed on its wide end, it is stable, but it has the capacity for instability. It is both a link between two surfaces, and also a means of forcing them apart. It is, perhaps its potential that makes the wedge such an attractive visual metaphor.
