1204, Cord #1 Sidewall, 2013

A sheet of pink wallpaper is printed with an enlarged, high-resolution photograph of fuzzy twine. Petra Blaisse is known for designing large-scale curtains that move and breathe across the expanse of a stage or an architectural facade. Her Touch series of wall coverings feature detailed photographs of wool, felt, fur, and knitted or woven fabrics. The flat surface invites the eye to touch.
