Qualia – Skyhole is part of the artist’s Qualia Series. In Qualia – Skyhole, masonry strings create a white string ceiling above the garden, with a single opening in the middle, inviting viewers to lay on their back and find an opening to the sky amidst the many string layers.
Qualia Series alters pre-existing spaces, structures or objects, primarily using dozens of white masonry strings to reveal the observer, the observed and the process of observation. This practice invites the viewer to reconsider their seemingly ordinary surroundings and listen to a realm of perception that is unquantifiable, internal, and subjective.
