Unbounded references the limitless nature of interpretation and unrestrained manipulation of material. The works address themes including consumerism and desire, surface and tactility, labour and production, and the global effects of manufacturing. The poem Shirt by Robert Pinsky can be seen in the front gallery as a vinyl wall text. Available to read here: www.poetryfoundation.org
