Dianne Whyte, The Trap Rooms IThe Trap Rooms I
89 x 63 cm.
Edition of 10













This work is about the treatment of space as a complex, psychological terrain. It uses the functional apparatus of theatrical staging as a metaphor for the manipulation of reality by social and perceptual forces ordinarily concealed from our awareness. This image depicts the Trap Room in use, we see the shift in floor space and the mechanisms are exposed although ambiguous.
