Dantela 2011 by Diane Katsiaficas

This project was created by one of the art departments faculty, Diane Katsiaficas.
This project consists of six silk organza curtains each with laser cut patterns that resemble traditional 'dantela', (lace threadwork).
Each pattern symbolizes one of six important environmental issues today.
1. Climate Change
2. Water
3. Renewable Energy
4. Waste and the necessity for reuse and recycling
5. Biodiversity
6. Protection of endangered species
Each curtain measures: 91.4 cm x 122 cm
The curtains were exhibited in the show, Design 2011: Ecology - Modern Technologies, in the Municipal Gallery of Athens, Metaxourgeio Building, Athens, Greece
Dec.15, 2011- Feb 8, 2012.

 Light is shown on the curtain to create a shadow doubling the appearance of the image creating depth.
