The Empty Space Project, 2005-2008

Exhibited at Tin Sheds Gallery University of Sydney 23 June 2006 – 15 July 2006,
at Ivan Dougherty Gallery COFA (MFA Exhibition) January 2008
and George Paton Gallery Melbourne University  7 – 17 October 2008.

The Empty Space Project was an investigation into imaginary and negative space. The space between two entities, bodies, buildings or objects is often seen as empty, devoid of meaning and yet it is this very space which determines the way we experience the spatial relationship between the solid shapes.
