Christine Corday engages a materials practice as artist with the evolving human scale of perception and fundamental forces. She works with temperature, material states, elemental metals as well as creates further medium often in artist-led collaborations with international scientists and science organizations.




Carbon Steel

24 x 56 x 4-1/2 in.


PARENTHETICAL DIMENSION / Continuing Corday's PROTOIST Series, AHN (pronounced awn) is a 350 pound steel work placed at the corner of an exterior or interior architecture. AHN supports the juxtaposition of unknown visible and invisible dimensional planes, reminding it’s experiencer of the intersecting choices constructing reality and the impermanence/permanence of “time” and “place”.


The Forms of the PROTOIST Series investigate the transformative state between the unknown and the known. The series engenders direct physical contact, to not only be touched but to be worn over time by human interaction – AHN extends the human hand with the touch of human invention and perception.


Brooklyn WagMag spoke to AHN's "grounding resonance" saying, "It optically strums like an electric bass and has considerable gravitational pull. " [^]
