Threadscape Series

I created the pieces in this series by building table top constructions consisting of closely spaced curtains of colored threads hanging from thin bars at the top. In THREADSCAPE #1 there are three curtains going back away from the viewer. In THREADSCAPE #2 there are five. I then lit the constructions and shot them on 4×5 film against a gray background. I printed the images rotated 90 degrees from their original orientation because I liked the sense of wavelike motion that resulted from running the threads horizontally. The lefthand thumbnail of each pair yields a view of the full composition. The thumbnail on the right blows up a section of each piece to give a sense of the finely detailed texture on your relatively low resolution computer screen.
