Andrea Roberts | U/T
2016 | laser cut newspaper | 13.5 x 27.5 in
Reflective of a broad concern that links technology and the self, U/T by Andrea Roberts uses a laser cutter to produce delicate patterns on newspaper. The patterns reference another body of work that takes the formal quality of metal screens, which act as the only portal to the outside world for a reclusive order of nuns. Multiple interacting patterns conjoin with an unconventional shape, created through the laser cut process, to propose an aesthetically pleasing and technically puzzling final work.
