Diana Thater: Knots + Surfaces
About the Book
This book documents a year-long exhibition entitled "Knots + Surfaces", at Dia Center for the Arts from January 2001 through January 2002, in which 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-dimesional spatial model to a map of a honeybee's dance, Thater expands her abiding concern with the intersection of nature and culture. Along with an introduction to both her work and the exhibition by Lynne Cooke, the book will include an essay on Thater's work by Akira Lippit.

Edited by Karen Kelly. Essays by Lynne Cooke and Akira Lippit. Foreword by Michael Govan.
