Saturated glowing colors intwewoven with barely legible text and information that was meant to invite and push the viewer away simultaneously.  The History of the pattern making, that is called “Razzle Dazzle”, was to create a vibration in the visual perceception of information to distort the object. In this case the vibration was an interior space with small “Knights” helmets formed from paper that also possessed the same pattern making as the walls. The shear scale of the work consuming the space made you dizzy, not allowing your eyes to really focus on anyone particular thing, almost like a carnival attraction.
