Corners

Sometimes research, sometimes documenting my own work, sometimes the thing that appeals to me in other people’s work, sometimes it’s the work itself. A collection of edges and intersecting planes.

I love this person’s description of corners;

Corners are lonely things. They sit quietly at the intersection of two walls, belonging to the room yet not quite partaking in the fullness of its space—situated, as it were, both inside and out.

And in Poetics of Space, Gaston Bachelard says:

“Every corner in a house, every angle in a room, every inch of secluded space in which we like to hide, or withdraw into ourselves, is a symbol of solitude for the imagination; that is to say, it is the germ of a room, or of a house.”

I experimented with this idea of the potential of corners in Light Corner, taking a space that potentially had shadowy or negative connotations and filling it with light.
