60 different size white strips of cloth sewn horizontally to a piece of white cloth. Stenciled in black ink individually on the strips of cloth are the following words: "Repetitive," "Pattern," "one," "an," "other," "-," "=" and half circle.
Repetitive" and "Pattern" are repeated in lower case and upper case letters on the cloth. They are repeated in 2 vertical columns alternately on the left and right side of the cloth. The words correspond as the two columns progress. "One," "an" and "other" are intermixed in one column and form patterns. "-", "=" and half circles are repeated, intermixed and form a pattern in a fourth column. Cha is transforming language through manipulation, repetition and reducing the words to units.
