Mary Alice Dixon Hinson Fabrications

Mary Alice Dixon-Hinson cites the Acropolis and Marc-Antoine Laugier’s Primitive Hut as part of an analysis of rationalist representation in Western cultural history. She reviews the use of perspective in the Renaissance to create illusory space. She contrasts this with Chinese practices, in which the basis of making is not the representation of nature, but the fabrication process, specifically weaving. She concludes with an examination of contemporary work that treats artifacts as dense, artificial or manufactured geographies.
