Title: Fabric constructions
Author: Dunkin, Joanna
Abstract: The artist is not simply a passive reflector of his or her world, but a dynamic creator of it. I have tried to expand and enrich my experience rather than merely duplicate it. The world I create is of planes, volumes, spatial sequences, and some familiar architectural elements such as stairs and boxes. By using the above mentioned elements, a number of interlocking and highly ordered spatial relation ships have resulted. An interlocking spatial relationship consists of two spaces whose fields overlap to form a zone of shared space. When two spaces interlock their volumes in this manner, each retains its identity and definition as a space. But the resulting configuration of the two interlocking spaces will be subject to a number of interpretations . My concern is with these various interpretations . The shapes left open for interpretation appear to have depth or to be three dimensional, but are presented on a two dimensional surface. I have also ventured to place two and three dimensional images on three dimensional pieces . Emphasis is also placed on double interpretation of a group of shapes -- shapes that belong to two or more images and seem to move in different directions .
