Interview with Janet Laurence on Public Art and Ecology

ByAdrian Parr

One of the main ecological undercurrents in my work is to help the viewer sense their interdependency with other life forms and systems. I attempt to create spaces of perception that can immerse us within the lifeworld. I understand these spaces as elemental and fugitive. Through a language of veiling, transparency, and translucency I set out to create enmeshed environments that express ephemerality. I am interested in how spaces can be slowed down, the pace and rhythm of porosity and fluidity and how these processes inform environments. I prefer not to think in terms of boundaries; rather membranes.
