When identifying space, it is context

(an other or negative space) that defines and gives form and volume to space.

 

The wood framing stage in the construction of Canadian houses presents an unfolding of space,

a partitioning of space that

creates space out of space.

 

This new space is not only framed

by the surrounding landscape

(a landscape which is itself often undergoing simultaneous

transformation) but also frames

and redefines that landscape

from within, through windows,

doors and other openings.

 

When this dynamic is coupled

with the pictorial space of the photographic image and the

viewing space within a gallery, an

interplay of virtual and physical space

is formed where space, perspective, landscape and image become recursive.
