ABSTRACT
The article features Touch/Down, a textile installation by weaver/artist Sheila Held. Held notes that tantra, which also means weaving in Sanskrit, is used in India to denote a religious philosophy that views all beings of the world and all ranges of experience as waves and strata in a universal stream of life. According to Held, in her tapestries, she seeks to synthesize primitive symbolism and natural forms with contemporary metaphysics and scientific and technological concepts, striving for a fluidity that dissolves boundaries.
