Title: "PPE (haptic structures/room dividers)"
Description: This installation is created in response to our current use of screens and room dividers as a means of control and containment. Touch, tactility and engaging with our built environment, though an important part of our daily lives, has been reduced to distanced interactions as our surroundings are imbued with a sense of hazard/risk. The structures on display highlight our need for stimulation and a sense of novelty in the places we inhabit and the lingering need to interact without barriers.
Dimensions: Various sizes
Artist: Kriti Khatri
Title: The Knots
Description: Knotting or Macramé is one of many crafts revived by those who love working with their hands. After fading in popularity, Macramé saw resurgence in the 1970's.
Now, Macramé is back, making waves again through its contemporary patterns used in clothing, necklaces, bracelets, wall hangings, curtains, table runners etc. that have revitalized the historic knotting technique with a cleaner and more natural look.
Dimensions: 3ft x 4ft
