What a thrill to see these pieces come full circle! From January 8-28, 2017 these double-weave sculptures were installed at the Seymour Art Gallery as part of a group show of emerging artists that explored the idea of balance.
This was the third time I've worked with this form. The work slowly getting larger and more complex. This time I was exploring ideas of time and work in this woven three-dimensional journal. Each sculpture represents one day in which I documented my activities. The densely woven areas contrast with unwoven areas of evenly spaced warp threads representing changes in activity, units of time, and motion. The structures themselves depend on a balanced application of surface tension to avoid collapse.
It was especially exciting to see how movement and shadow played into the experience. That was a lovely and unexpected outcome of the installation.
Thank you to everyone who came out to see it.
