Nylon mesh drapes, curtain rods

Destination is an interactive sculpture about paths and journeys, aisles and entrances, color and mutability. Consisting of a series of manually operated layers of curtains, the viewer determines what is revealed or concealed. This sculpture describes volume without weight. The curtains, made from a nylon mesh fabric, create a set or labyrinth. Entrances and exits, passages and corridors allow individuals to move through them in a non-linear but progressive fashion. The viewer determines how active or passive the piece is by interweaving three dimensions. The drapes form blocks of color and create moires patterns that echo 2-dimensional art. Viewers are invited to experiment with the piece by changing the position of each curtain layer, creating their own mutable journey through the piece. A small cell is formed by four walls of curtains in the center. It can be open like a pavilion or closed like a chamber. The work is theatrical and domestic as well as minimal and baroque. The series of curtains are soft and ephemeral and define volume and presence.
