What happens when physics meets fleece meets philosophical musings? Artist R Justin Stewart explores this intersection through his tensile fleece installations, which evolve into a three-dimensional infographic conveying relationships, connections, and data. The Brooklyn-based artist takes vibrant swatches of fabric, and stretches the material with tension ropes as the malleable fabric takes on a new form and identity. One of the works, A Messiah Project, 13C, features turquoise and blue figures that portray a 13th-century interpretation of the Messiah; the installation, however, meets the 21st-century through the embedded QR codes that can be scanned for further intellectual dialogue.
