Title: Room dividers
Author: Christensen, Els
Abstract: "In harmony there is no duality." My main intention was to create two different screens that would enhance and harmonize with the surroundings they were placed in. These two screens can be viewed from both sides. In the case of the three-paneled or Western-style screen, the woven cloth panels are supportive to the wood. In the Eastern-style screen, the wood is supportive to the woven drape. In the Western-style screen, I encorporated the materials, colors, and design that are in accord with the wood. In the Oriental-style screen, the colors represent feelings, as it did for the Impressionistic painters, also. As for the design, the butterfly symbolizes the most metaphysical insect, being transformed from a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly. This seemingly miraculous change in the appearance of the butterfly unifies the duality of the two insects into one. The World Is after all as the butterfly, However it may be (Blyth, 1967, Sein) The Butterfly Even when pursued, Never appear in a hurry (Blyth, 1967, Garaky)
