Rima and Berenice apply ancient technologies like weaving and knitting to contemporary and unconventional materials. Intrinsic to the making process is the anticipation of that Gestalt moment, when the work becomes something other than the sum of its parts. There is no “art math” to determine this moment. It arrives suddenly and beautifully. This is a mystery both artists love to share with their audiences.
