I developed this study while attending Cornell University's Summer College program. I started with a tool and began exploring different aspects of its construction and movement. Tasked with finding a word that encompassed our tool, I chose the word "shear" and attempted to represent it in a three dimensional manner. Wanting to highlight the cutting and vertical movements of a pair of scissors, I focused on the shearing and sliding motion. Using this idea of "shearing" as the foundation, I loosely depicted the behavior of a pair of scissors through drawing and modeling.

Blah blah blah blah
