Corners

2005-2006

Materials:

white plaster

Description:

Investigation into dwelling space.

"The point of departure of my reflections is the following: every corner in a house, every angle in a room, every inch of secluded space in which we like to hide, or withdraw into our selves, is a symbol of solitude for the imagination; that is to say, it is the germ of a room, or of a house." Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space, 1966

Working from a floor plan of the living space, each wall-to-wall-to-floor corner was captured with plaster. When set, the collection of corners was displayed on shelves.
