Filter is a site-specific ceramic window installation at Sears Architects, 16 Ionia Street, investigating how culture affects art and how we filter these cultural reflections in our everyday life. Through a 15'L x 7'H x 1'D. interplay of art tile panels, sculpted flowers, leaves and ceramic vessels, this installation engages the viewer to an emotional energy created from an architectural pattern language of positive and negative space. Repetitive details of this pattern languages strikingly move the conversation between the vessels and elements of surface texture, brushwork and tile shapes. Historically informed use of red ware, earthenware, stoneware and porcelain clay bodies, color, texture and shape of the hand made ceramic vessels and art tile explore both the familiarity & diversity of clay as cultural form. Filter, by Nicole Dubrow, creates a dimensional quilt of movement celebrating the contextual fabric of life by daylight and reflected night as it is open to view 24 hours.
