Golden Screen

Japanese painting was crystallized into its own style during the Momoyama Period, featuring two-point perspective scenes composed with flat shapes of gold leaf clouds.  In Golden Screen (2016) I recreated this compositional phenomenon in the lived space of the Poetry Garden at the Seattle Center.  As window screening serves as a scrim through which we see the Seattle Center from the Poetry Garden, I sewed clouds of gold buttons. Their shapes responded to the real-life composition seen through the screen.  
This work was presented by the City of Seattle Office of Arts and Culture and the Seattle Center.
