The Gladstone Hotel
October 12 to 26, 2006
The design of this piece explores the transfer of a photographic image onto a fabric surface by integrating the use of light reflective yarns and polyester yarns on the jacquard loom. The perceived image of the morning light reflection/absorption on to the ocean varies according to day and indoor lighting conditions as well as the position of the viewer, revealing the ambivalent light reflection qualities of water. The fabric surface represents the poetic and fluid qualities of the ocean’s surface.
