Kate Dodd, Between the Lines (installation view), 1998, 30’ x 30’ x 12’.
Kate Dodd creates a commissioned outdoor sculptural installation on the Rutgers-Newark Plaza. Kate Dodd writes, “Between the Lines is a series of welded ‘screens’ placed in staggered parallel rows. Like driving past a vineyard, one is aware of the continually changing perspective these transparent planes effect, from intermittent uprights to a branching tangle, and from afar, as a rhythmically scattered field. The contrast between the overall rusty patina and the fluorescent tips simultaneously callstomind early spring and safety markings in a construction site, while a sense of web-like growth permeates the systematic structure.” This outdoor sculptural installation was commissioned by Rutgers–Newark.
