From the review:

The images, in their half-emergent state, tug at the flatness of the materials, creating spatial instability and frustrating attempts to grasp the whole. It is here that the materials do their work: the stacks of yarn strands evoke lines of pixels on an old television screen or projector, creating a kind of low-resolution image that gestures toward, but does not clearly articulate, the graphic image.
