self (de)(con)struction

 

Ongoing series of relational, multi-disciplinary works, in which the triangle is explored as a symbol of activity; connecting and multiplying to unite opposites in the paradox of (de)centred being.

As it multiplies outwards the triangle is re-constructed as the centre of a star ( >< looking to connect outwardly to other stars ) AND as the form or frame of a diamond (<> drawing our attention inwards).

<> We see through a diamond window – into a construction site.

>< Daimone is an ancient word that describes an inner spirit or guide not as a personified being but as a peculiar mode of activity.

><>< Two triangles bound together with French Knitting  draw our attention inwards and outwards through the hole(s) created by the weaver
