Sarah Oppenheimer: D-17
September 16 - December 5, 2010
6100 Main Street, 352 Sewall Hall, Houston, TX 77005
Known for her aesthetically sleek and perceptually startling installations, Sarah Oppenheimer focuses on the architecture of the Rice University Art Gallery’s two parallel glass walls. For her installation, D-17, Oppenheimer explores the way light enters the building by controlling it as it passes through the space. Oppenheimer rethinks and reinvents the most taken-for-granted elements of architectural space- planes and holes.
