Location: Granville Island, Vancouver, B.C.

Pattern and decoration are the drivers of this work created as a temporary installation for Design Week on Granville Island. I am interested in the degredation of a pattern as it is viewed from one window to the next to evoke a sense of movement. The site, a parking garage becomes uncharacteristically ornamented with an intricate pattern that recalls the stained glass windows seen is less secular places. The pattern is a traditional Latvian textile pattern, the "Tree of Life".
