Renee, Yungbin and I tried several methods to hang up the fabric to create a blackout curtain. The best method was to fasten basswood strips to the edge of the fabric, fold the fabric over twice, and then nail the curtain to the ceiling (through the fabric and basswood). This method looks nice since the fabric is rolled along the basswood and since you can’t see how it is fastened to the ceiling. We plan on folding the sides in and ironing them to give the curtain clean edges.

John Cage’s composition, Harmony III, served as a starting point to study negative and positive space. The juxtaposition between an opaque reflectivity and areas of transparency create personal moments of self reflection. Sudden transparency confuses our senses by revealing a previously unknown vulnerability. Perceived boundaries become inherently elusive as immediate surroundings fluctuate.
