Catalogue Note

Feeling Material XII (Hanging) is a continuous line that identifies a human space by using a form of trajectory mapping similar to those attempts to describe the various pathways of an electron around a nucleus. It becomes a line that spins a web around the body, orbiting close to the skin and then spiraling out into space, again replacing the image of a palpable body with that of a field effect or an energy zone. It is a mobile model that hangs freely, rotating from a single point as it reacts to wind movement around it.
