Date: 2012

Composed for viewers to experience from both the outside and the inside, this piece has a digital feeling from the exterior and was ethereal from the interior. Strands were woven at perpendicular directions using a traditional basket weave overhead and then streamed vertically to the floor. The color scheme was chosen to reference light as seen through a prism.
