Dana Zamecnikova brought very early her attention from architecture and stage design - due to her studies at professor Josef īs Svoboda studio - over to scenic compositions, revoking the experiences of both the dreams and seen reality.These compositions were closed within space of glass boxes, which she evolved later to compositions of space. By means of modelled and painted glass, Zamecnikova īs expression gains a strong dramatic tension. The autor īs work obtained a world wide response, and enabled her to participate and to lecture in the teaching courses in many countries. One of the most important works of recent years is monumental spatial composition called Theatrum Mundi in The Corning Inc. Company Building in Corning, NY, USA.
