Pausis is a meditation on an extended pause. More condition than state, pausis explores the condition of wall and roof by way of bounded trajectories. Fabric surfaces move along lines traced through different moments of a rotational and upwards translational dialogue between wall and roof. This conversation of conditions allows wall and roof to shift identities as they explore their shared parameter space. Tangential relationships describe conditions of exposure, intersections suggest enclosure. The condition of roof is fully formed through action: a surface becomes roof when it is filled with foliage, or schache.

A pause is usually defined by duration, a length. The sukkah extends the parameters of the pause and amplifies it in spatial terms. This is pausis: its identity is found within the brea(d)th of a pause.
