"I don't want the material behind glass all the time. I want you to be able to experience that material without anything between you and it. I've constructed this wood system so that the glass is off the wall by about an inch and a half. And that allows the beet papyrus to cast a shadow on the wall and it also allows light to come from behind. So that's kindof the idea: room for shadow, no material or frame between you and the surface, and some natural back-lighting as well."
This display system was designed by artist Julia Goodman for her edition "A different king of warmth"
