The Beauty of Space

Sometimes what makes a scene, a room, or a landscape beautiful is the space between the physical entities within that place. The space and relationship between two objects may be technically invisible, but if you look closely enough you will see the countless shapes, angles, curves, and so on, that exist within that void. Today, we are drawing these spaces, known as the negative space, in our notebooks. How can you transform these drawings into an entire composition?

Today, we are drawing these spaces, known as the negative space, in our notebooks. How can you transform these drawings into an entire composition? Roni Horn, whose sketch is pictured above, is interested in composing spaces in which visitors can become part of the artwork. Rob Weiner, describing Chinati's Things That Happen Again, Pair Object VII (For a Here and a There) writes that "Horn’s concept was to create a space in which the viewer would be part of, would inhabit, the work."

Algunas veces lo que hace bello a una escena, un cuarto, o un paisaje son los espacios entre las entidades físicas en ese plano. El espacio y la relación entre dos objetos es técnicamente invisible, pero si observas detalladamente encontrarás incontables figuras, ángulos, curvaturas, y más; las cuales existen en ese vacío. Hoy dibujaremos en nuestros cuadernos estos espacios, conocidos como espacio negativo ¿Como puedes transformar estos dibujos en composiciones enteras? Roni Horn, la artista que hizo este boceto, está interesada en componer espacios en donde el visitante se convierte en parte de la obra. Rob Weiner, describe la obra en Chinati Things That Happen Again, Pair Object VII (For a Here and a There) [Cosas que pasan de nuevo, objeto en par VII (de aquí y a allá)] ‘El concepto de Horn fue crear un espacio en donde la audiencia se convierte en parte de y habita la obra’ Comparte tus dibujos con nosotras usando el hashtag #chinatiSSU ! #chinatiedu #chinatifoundation #museumfromhome De el ensayo de, Roni Horn, Things That Happen Again, Pair Object VII (For a Here and a There)[Cosas que pasan de nuevo, objeto en par VII (de aquí y a allá)] , 1986-1988, Chinati, The Vision of Donald Judd [La vision de Donald Judd], Rob Weiner.
