Christine Wallers received a 2005 GAP to purchase materials for her upcoming installation Sea Level at Suyama Space in Seattle. Her installation will be comprised of thousands of fine-gauge wires stretched parallel to the floor at varying levels to form a three-dimensional plane just above the surface, thereby creating a sense of transition between mass and movement that can be viewed from different angles. “This piece marks a transition from my previous work with more dramatic desert light, to the subtle, jewel-like quality of northwest coastal light,” says the artist.
