“The window opens onto a three-dimensional world beyond: it is a membrane where surface meets depth, where transparency meets its barriers. The window is also a frame, a proscenium: its edges hold a view in place.”



(Anne Friedberg, Virtual Window: From Alberti to Microsoft, 2009)


In my practice, I am interested in creating a sense of inside and outside. The window serves as a medium for these two spaces to merge the boundaries. In previous centuries it had a more functional purpose- to provide ventilation. Now placed in the technological advanced century, it also raises the question of privacy and publicity. In a way technological screens are also a type of window that also changes the materiality of a space.
