The living room window to the side of the bird-walk from Taliesin, the home of Frank Lloyd Wright from 1914-1959, reproduced in Stunt-safe glass (used in the lm industry for special effects) broken on to the furniture and floor of the space in which it is installed as if there had been a stained glass window set into the wall that someone had fallen through.The title refers to a disagreement between Piet Mondrian and Theo van Doesburg in 1924 that led to a split in the same year, about the relevance of the diagonal line in Art. During the production of their own Stained glass window work - over a decade after Frank Lloyd Wright’s contributions - Doesburg’s works featured the use of the diagonal, whilst Mondrian was heavily opposed to its usage.
