Linear Motion

Amie Adelman's avatar Amie Adelman

Linear Motion is an installation made with over 30,000 yards of thread that can be manipulated to fit in any space. The work was made to gradate from black to white, but the colors and values can be easily changed. In 2007, Amie Adelman began experimenting with three-dimensional weaving by stretching thread between nails on the wall to create curvilinear forms that hang in space. She had learned that off-loom weaving offered her an added perspective of depth and tactility that she could not achieve through traditional weaving techniques. At the same time, she studied descriptive geometry, which requires making sense of objects in relationship to each other by manually solving the problem three-dimensionally.
