In the Woven Windows series, Jongerius uses the motif of a window to explore the possibilities of weaving as an act of painting. The Jacquard weaving technique turns thread into a three-dimensional tool that she can use to “paint”. The window is a famous motif in painting—its structure resembles a frame, allowing viewers to look either outside or inside or into a painting. The window is thus a symbol of seeing.
