With these pieces it’s all to do with the hanging and lighting – another installation using strips of fabric – this time machine knitted. To the artist the shadows are of equal importance. ‘They (the work) define the space as well as divide it.’

The images above are of the piece Over Here, an installation commissioned for Jupiter Artland. Knitted with fishing line, the piece has been strategically placed so panoramic views of the woods, fields and hills beyond can be seen through the eye of the web.
