This piece is Angela Glajcar’s Terforation. The artist is mostly known for her work with iron and wood, but recently she has been experimenting with installation pieces and objects using paper. Paper has an important meaning to Glajcar, for it absorbs light from the environment and gives off a spectrum of different colors. Her current project series, Terforation, is made of paper, and the name comes from the Latin words terra (earth) and foramen (hole). The name refers to the artist’s use of standard-sized paper to create basic geometric shapes. She takes these pieces of paper and layers them before tearing holes in them. These completed paper objects are then placed on the floor and hanged from the ceiling and walls.
