EXPLORATIONS OF STRUCTURE

‘Explorations of Structure’ by Jane Prophet has been one of those exhibitions that leave more questions unsolved than answered. The layering of meaning and the matrix of contextual references make these artworks worthy of being explored over and over again. For me, after the initial exhibition online, it is a pleasure to see the artworks moving from the ‘virtual’ gallery into the physical space of Kasa Gallery, Istanbul.

Jane Prophet is Professor of Art and Interdisciplinary Computing at Goldsmiths College. Her research interests span Art, Computer Science, Digital Humanities and Technology. Recent works include The Withdrawing Room, a series of laser cut dictionaries for Samuel Johnson’s House (2009); (Trans)Plant, 2008, a kinetic aluminum sculpture based on the structure of a plant; Counterbalance, 2007, a light based installation commissioned for a flood plain in Australia and Souvenir of England, 2007, a preserved apple tree covered in black velvet flocking and displayed in a giant snow dome. She works in London and the US east coast, where she has recently relocated her studio.

Artist biography ‘collaged’ from various sources, including Goldsmiths College and the artist’s website.
