A Romance of Perceived Dimensions
A window pane is another plane, as a surface to show us multiple spaces simultaneously.
The work is made of simple line drawings on glass windows. The lines trace reflected images from a particular vantage point, so that when complete they will have a unique sense of perspective, giving the illusion of another dimension.
The images show the viewer on one plane what they’re seeing inside/outside/themselves/behind them at the same time. The work plays with ideas of perspective, reality, dimensions and perceived space. Concept includes gradually adding more drawings over time so that the shop front window is a growing artwork.
The title references Asimov’s description the 1884 book ‘Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions’ by Edwin Abbott Abbott.
