January 24, 2001 - January 12, 2003
Past Events and Public Programs
In Knots + Surfaces, artist Diana Thater presents a large-scale, multiprojection video installation specifically designed to interact with the open architectural space of Dia’s third-floor gallery. A charged environment, combining layered projections with a
wall of clustered monitors, becomes the principal means for a metaphorical charting of multidimensional space. Referring to a recent mathematical hypothesis that correlates a complex, six-dimensional spatial model to a map of a honeybee's dance, Thater expands on her abiding concern with the intersection of nature and culture.
