Until Dawn

Until Dawn

An elaborate panel of flora and fauna that plays with light creating intriguing shadows.

Made of Tyvek, a super-resistant paper material, Until Dawn comes with velcro-closure loops for hanging over a wire, pole or from hooks. With scissors, you can cut it to the desired length: there's no need to sew!

The Until Dawn curtain is made by die-cutting (a machine stamps this out with something like a very large cookie cutter). The paper is folded in four layers to fit into the machine and stamped out. When you unfold it, you see a reflected symmetry because of this process. The deer looks like it could be standing at the edge of a lake and you see it’s reflection in the water underneath, half a dragonfly becomes whole and two birds are singing to each other.
