While the adjacent curves of a hyperbola infinitely bow away without meeting or intersecting,  a transverse axis is the anchor between the rift, a bridge spanning two never-touching worlds at their foci.

Along the Transverse Axis, a solo exhibition by William Plummer, offers a look into the complexities of cross-cultural identity, grappling with familial intimacy, geographic distance, and cultural loss. As an individual with Taiwanese and American heritage, Plummer mediates a life between the standards of definition. They look at the link between internal and external landscape through the lens of language, considering the process of making a form of personal wayfinding. In using diagrams that converge English and Mandarin phonetics alongside maps and mazes, the systems in which people order reality are explored in search of open space for cohesion and growth.
