Doug Johnston’s work refers to a long history of human technologies, referencing cordage, coiled vessels, bags and basketry, masonry construction, sewing machines and 3D printing. Johnston almost always works with cotton cord, stitched using industrial sewing machines. To this base, as shown in “Carousel,” he adds diverse materials including found objects, with results varying hugely in format and scale. Visible in the selected work, Johnston expands his technique into lighting applications, further diversifying his variegated formal vocabulary and multidisciplinary studio practice.
