Window Walk | Amanda Ho [The Weavers Workroom] X Wendy Voon Knits
Spatial Layering: Australian Tapestry Workshop
Space is built by overlapping several bi-dimensional planes: thin, light and transparent planes.
In this case, the transparency of each layer dissolving into each other, losing the sense of perspective and 3-dimensional character. The shapes, therefore, become the space in between.
How do we see things? What do we focus on?
The layers of warp on various looms, the apron cloths, the frames of the looms, the architecture elements of the space, the essential tools and equipment required for weaving but they recedes into the background once the weaving begins.
The Japanese concept of ‘miegakure’: a spatial composition where it is not possible to see all the parts at the same time; to glimpse something that is hidden.
This piece shows where my eyes were focused at the Australian Tapestry workshop.
Amanda Ho is a Melbourne-based weaver, who draws on her experience as an architect as well as her Chinese heritage.
In 2015, she turned her focus from architecture to weaving. Her designs demonstrate how the use of materials, patterns and structures continues to influence in her work.
