"Ripples" 1 & 2

About this project

The spatial divides "Ripples" 1 & 2 focus on subtle material use and textural sensitivity, exploring rhythmic movement over large surface areas. They are influenced by the sensitive and orchestrated use of very simple materials in Zen temple gardens in Japan. The "Ripples" series is intended to be integrated , as far as possible, within the space and hold a dialogue with the materials used in the surrounding architecture. The works aim to offer a calm focal point within bustling environments.

'Ripples 2' Woven Spatial Divide.
Photographer: Dave Noble
The spatial divides are constructed using a double-cloth construction. The spatial divides focus on subtle material use and textural sensitivity, exploring rhythmic movement over large surface areas. They are semi-transparent and double-sided, allowing for the opportunity to achieve quite a different effects and atmosphere from one side of a space to the other.
