These are some of the photographs from the Dimensions of Space exhibition.  It's so hard to photograph a work that you walk into and around.  So I've captured lots of angles.  I've also taken some video footage which I will edit together in the next little while and post up here somewhere.

I'm really pleased with how the work has turned out. The negative space in the room is as important as the work itself - the places in the work that you can walk in to and think about yourself in relation to the work.  The lighting provides additional line drawings add extra punch to the wool 'extrusions'.  Unfortunately, the yellow wool doesn't show up very well in the photographs, but rest assured, there was plenty of it. 

'Extrusion' is such a nice word to describe what I wanted to do; pull apart a painting so we could walk in.  To extruuuuuuuude the lines and shapes so we could enter.
