The Threshold Between an Image of a Thing and the Thing Itself

Diana Al-Hadid makes work that crosses cultures and disciplines, drawing inspiration from art history, ancient invention, science, science fiction, myth, and Northern Renaissance paintings. In a broader sense, too, once can see influences from architecture, astrophysics, instruments, caves, puddles, black holes, sound and pitch and volume, pixels, plate tectonics, levers and pulleys, geometry, staircases, muscles, acrobatics, pedestals, and invisible things.
