ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the definition of constructing surface. According to the author, constructed surface is a phenomenon that centers on the understanding of contemporary fiber and textile and is a distinct medium from others. The term may also refer to artists who construct surface out from a profound need to materialize, build and invent a visual and psychological field, which is physical, tangible and sensational. Moreover, a constructed surface has no definite rules or clear definition that could be applied to the concept of constructed surface, however, it belies on the ordinary definition of surface as something which is superficial or outward appearance.
