Throughout her work, american artist sarah oppenheimer rethinks and reinvents the most taken-for-granted elements of architectural space: plans and holes. within existing spaces, she creates new walls, passages and shaped holes, investigating how different kinds and configurations of perforated planes affect our perceptual experience of the built space. To define each of her installations, she has developed a system called a ‘typology of holes’. This typology consists of three basic categories: a wormhole, a cinema hole and a horizon hole, each category designating not only the shape of the opening in the structure, but also the organization of space surrounding the opening that is the hole.
