Rainforest Wall


286 x 296 x 1.2 cm

Double sided sand-blasted glass.

Private Collection.

Lijn used both negative and positive elements in this glass wall based on the pattern of a net. This wall was particularly interesting because Lijn reversed the pattern half way across.

At the moment in which negative and positive come together the pattern becomes invisible or dissolves into nothing, just as in physics when negative and positive particles meet. Lijn managed to use the thickness of the glass to keep the image just visible during the transition.
