This was the first of the octagonal series of Jennifer's Crystalline Floorpieces. I particularly liked her drawings of transitive geometry and gradation rhythm, and decided to formulate custom colors to obtain a richness and power not available using commercial yarns.
The application of the dyes by airbrush, allowing for precise placement of the colors coupled with the invisible seaming of dyed and white areas, effected the rugs to transfigure their knitted composition to a sculptural fluidity suitable as a stage for performance.
The culmination of this project was the production of the remaining rugs for inclusion in "Practical Magic" Jennifer's solo show at Project Arts Centre
Dublin, IE; curated by Tessa Giblin.
