Shuttling Between Dimensions

In the fiction Flatland, Abbott (2010) told a story about the meeting of two different dimensions. When the character named Sphere (3D creator) visits the Flatland (2D world), he cannot show his whole body since the Flatland is not spacious enough to fully present him. In the process of passing, he gradually grows into a circle from a dot, and then slowly shrinks into a dot before disappearing. The process of his passing reveals the intersection through showing the dissection of Sphere. This process, from the view point of lower dimension creature, is a constant-tranforming movement that can't be predict nor defined.

As a weaver, the process of weaving reveals the secret, subtle aspects of the movement of passing through by constructing the interlacements in multilayer weave interchange. The layers of fabrics become the stage for passing through to happen, and the intersection parts are the evidence of this movement. These intersections represent both the end of one journey and the beginning of another; they cross two worlds, yet the inbetweenness embodied in the intersections would only appear when the action of passing through occurs. As a result, these woven sculptures reveal the spatiality that is inherent in weaving technique.
