Space-screens

1977–1979

These works developed from Clearing, Space-hold, Forest and the Space-holds. In particular, the use of forced one-point perspective. I wanted the volume of space within the sculpture to appear, depending upon where the viewer was standing, to be extended or compressed. With the Space-screens I have created a fictional, three-dimensional space/volume controlled by the structural elements that define the interior volume, and the position of the viewer.
