Marie-Christine Katz and David Abir: "Spinning my web"
15 October 2005 12:51 PM
New York-based artist Christine Katz mapped her movements for one year and wove them into this suspended metal wire web, macramé for the digital set. The floating net entangles bits of glass within its fibers, crystals meant to mark important points upon the years journey, though they remain entirely abstract to the viewer who sees them but as colorless glints, allusions perhaps to a path more spiritual than physical, a desire to catch something far more elusive than a taxi cab. An accompanying sound piece made in collaboration with David Abir melds Katzs voice with other noises, again evoking not an urban wandering but something more ethereal and immaterially searching.
