"Seven Windows"
2002

window sizes ranging from 5 in. x 5 in. to 9 in. x 9 in. wide, and approx. 5 in. deep

This project at the Dirt Palace in Providence consisted of seven translucent interior windows. The pieces were made for Robin Nanney, an artist whose private studio space was adjacent to a busy artist's cooperative space. She wanted to allow light into the studio without compromising her privacy. She also wanted the wall to appear both fortress-like and appealing to visitors. The wall was positioned with morning light striking one side and afternoon light striking the other so that a wide range of light conditions affected the pieces. The windows’ compositions related to the surrounding architecture and to the interface between public space and private space.
