Have you ever seen a piece of art that just left you in awe? I think I found just such a piece. The artist’s name isRebecca Ward. She’s a native of Waco, Texas who finds herself living and working in Austin. She came up with an amazing work of modern art that moprhs an everyday item into something extraordinary. When asked about her pieces, Rebecca had this to say:
My installations are site-specific works dependent upon the space they occupy. Utilizing existing lines, beams, and angles, each piece I create is informed by the individual site and its unique linear movement. Thus, my installations are inherently architectural. I choose patterns and shapes according to detailed measurements of the installation site. Ideally these patterns are numerically symmetrical or somehow numerically balanced, producing a dialogue between line and space. I initially began working with tape because of the broad range of colors in which it is available. Additionally, I have always been drawn to its unique textural qualities. I began making videos to create a dialogue with the tape installations. I see the videos as a way to animate the tape installations, and further explore my architectural manipulation of space. When using tape, rather than leaving evenly-placed two-dimensional lines upon a wall, I expand upon the material’s sculptural potential and bring these installations into a third dimension.
