Nancy Koenigsberg

My work is a synthesis of the technological urban environment and the natural world. The palette and texture represent nature. The materials are those of technology and industrialization. Though I employ innovative materials, I use traditional weaving and knotting techniques. I fuse the past and present, the natural and the technological which comprise our world.

The medium I have chosen "narrow-gauge electrical wire" is ideally suited to the exploration of space, This material lends itself to the creation of delicate lattice work or heavier, nearly opaque surfaces. By enclosing objects within objects, and allowing space to filter throughout, I seek to focus on the ambiguities in the distinction between "inside" and  "outside".
