This site specific installation investigates the relationship between rendered canvas and architectural envelopes: in particular “Painted Canvas” aims to blur the distinctions between what is living or non-living, organic or technological, promising or threatening, true or synthetic. Ideas about nature and its simulation are central to this small installation, inviting the viewers to question what is 'real' and what is not. Constructed out of flat sheets of printed canvas, this wall borrows some of the techniques developed and mastered by Impressionism, and apply them to manufacture specific effect for an architectural project.
