Windows A-G

About the Windows Series

 

The Window Series explores ideas of inside vs outside, the outside bearing connections to nature as in "the great outdoors", the inside as a space that separates us from the exterior and inevitably from one another. The window is the line that divides these two worlds. However, when one passes through the window into the outside, this realm is likely to mirror the interior in that it is designed and tamed with little trace of untouched nature. The window then becomes a mirror, our image is projected into both worlds pointing to a problematic and philosophical search for nature. Where then is the dividing line between the built environment and the natural world?
