The Walking Woman series contained many three-dimensional works, including an important group of stainless-steel figures commissioned for the Ontario Pavilion at Expo Blind consists of four porous partitions framed in steel and clad in aluminum mesh. The construction might remind viewers of a chain-link fence. Snow specified four different gauges for his panels, which are mounted in parallel, forming a cube open on three sides.
Visitors are encouraged to walk between the panels as if through corridors or a maze; they see the texture of the interior mesh panels, and they see through them to the gallery beyond. Those standing outside are seeing the people in the maze as part of the work, figures atomized or blurred as they move between the panels.
Snow Blind | PJ Tracy
Snow compares this effect to a cross-hatched drawing and to a camera going in and out of focus. The effect is also similar to the graininess of a photographic enlargement or the quality of offset printing as those technologies existed at the time. Another comparison, suggested by the title and effected in stages by the panels, is to progressive loss of vision.
