Id like for these thoughts to go further and begin to explore the surface of glass; the window.

“By revealing the exterior, the window locates the interior.- or indeed the self- in relation to the outside (exterior or surrounding) environment.” (p.140).  //]]

“The window becomes an interface that allows for the distance of contemplation of an individual’s relation to the public realm.” (p.141) //]]

“the window acts as a permeable interface between interior and exterior” (p.181). //]]

“By picturing himself at this transparent threshold, a dialectic is proposed whereby Althamer is at once rooted and absent.” (p.181)        *isolated and connected* Emotional Interlude?

and painting on physical timbers of wood and ‘puzzling’ them together exploring physical thresholds within the work. perhaps creating corners. Exploring a larger scale, interacting and engaging with the viewers. Creating a room? Dwelling. hidden but seen via the glass?
