The Space Between is a physical interpretation of the I and Thou, where two objects dissolve into one another and form a non-material relationship. They simultaneously act as individual forms and as a complete whole. The viewer is free to see both and may oscillate between viewing the formal, more sculptural elements and also the non-material, phenomenological aspects of the work.
This understanding results from how one moves around the sculpture. From side on, only a large ordinary white wall can be seen. From a three-quarters viewpoint, and as the viewer moves closer to the middle, a darkened slit can be seen permeating the center of the two walls. Only when viewed on center does the phenomenon take precedence over the objective elements in the sculpture. For this reason, the viewer’s relationship to the sculpture and its phenomenon are in constant flux and change depending on the angle the work is perceived.
