This work is a part of Femfolio, a collaborative project bringing together twenty woman artists who created the feminist revolution in art during the early 1970s. All artists were featured in the exhibition "How American Women Artists Invented Postmodernism: 1970-1975" at the Mason Gross School of the Arts Galleries (December 15, 2005–January 27, 2006). In collaboration with Master Printer John C. Erickson and the Brodsky Center.

Though the white, dripped lines are seemingly random, they have an organic rhythm. The sphere made up of interlocking movements echoes the order within chaos produced by nature on many levels. Tacha says, "'Knots' is a continuous freemoving line, created with an obsessive wiggling of my writst around and around the central space of the page - a metaphor perhaps for the endless fluid motion of everything around us, the incessant life of the cosmos."
