Cox uses slipknots to fix and change things on the fly. She doesn't stencil composition from above. Nor does she seed structural consequences from below by the "obeessive" repetition of one or two bits of cleverness. Text and shape inhere, but she scatters them as she scatters light, in no formalized, repeatable pattern, like the stars. Whether the constellations strike you as random, or complexly mathematical with pools of chaos surrounded by crisp physics, or a vision of some cosmic intelligence, it is the template given by the heavens.
