This three-dimensional work originated in drawing. Having worked with lines in drawings and, especially, with pen and ink on paper, the idea to extract a line from a two-dimensional surface and allow it to expand into space developed. The concept was to eliminate the surface and examine the line as an object.Read More
This study focuses on making a line thin and thick, the way a line is drawn on paper, and, on producing a certain texture similar to the lighter and heavier marks of a pencil on a surface. To obtain texture, the three-dimensional line is constructed with canvas dipped in pigmented plaster, which is then stitched to create a sort of a tube which carries inside it an aluminum wire. In this way, the line acquires malleable qualities, which are easier to manipulate. The idea to free the line from its surface is not to make three-dimensional drawings in space, but to focus on examining the dynamic of the line acquired by its own three dimensionality. Due to the materials employed, the constructed line bears a resemblance to a live cable, so I have worked with this quality of three-dimensional lines to build environments, which are dangerously charged.
