We are a collaborative called Voyeur Designs founded by Gina Thompson and Lucas Young. Our installation for the Tension show will be a site-specific sculpture made of re-purposed window blind slats. The piece will be large and cover the space over C4’s working area. I have entered a piece of string art under Voyeur Designs as well.
