This series of sculptures developed from both my previous Space-Hold works and in the forced perspective I experienced in Bernini’s Scala Regia corridor in the Vatican. In both space/volume is either visually compressed or elongated depending on the position of the viewer. In this series I continued to explore assumptions having to do with how space/volume is perceived by the viewer. Because these works were constructed to act with and on the viewer scale became an important consideration. With one or two exceptions I was unable to find satisfactory sites for these large-scale works. The only sculpture from this time that I was satisfied with was entitled: Clearing-Space-hold- Forest (1977). At over one hundred feet long the viewer was invited to walk in, around, and through it.
