DESCRIPTION

PRISM/LIVIN/ROOM is a fabric installation that breeches the public/private conversation by
creating a physical duality between a living room and a fabric art installation. Though apparent
opposites, these two environments are connected by the presentation of contemporary art. Browder
seeks to open the gallery up to non-traditional audiences and to encourage a sense of positive
"comfort" in the stereotypically non-comfortable space of the gallery. She plans to hold two Public
Sewing Days that encourage the viewer to become her collaborator. This is achieved either
physically with donation of fabric, trimming or sewing or by joining in the atmosphere: sitting in
the space, reading a book and enjoying the oversized colorful installation. Browder thinks of the
space as fluctuating conceptually and sees it as paralleling the optical illusion of the Rabbit and the
Duck. Kaninchen und Ente (German) - both exist equally, but are separated by a mysterious bond
that seems physical but non-tangible.
