11.04.10 : Idea Entry : Spatial (Tention/Relation/Plane)

Spacial - of or pertaining to space; existing or occurring in space; having extension in space.

The words “spatial tension” evoke all sorts of themes: conflict, superficiality, the depth of our relationships with others, barriers…

Determine the spatial relationships between features: Do they overlap? Is one contained by the other? Does one cross through the other?

A spatial relation specifies how some object is located in space in relation to some reference object. Since the reference object is usually much bigger than the object to locate, the latter is often represented by a point.

“This indeterminate physicality with different physical planes--it is beautiful and confusing, everything starting and reversing.”-- Robert Irwin

The subjects in a space "seem to activate the space they occupy and suggest a kind of dialogue between the objects."

"A primary function of a geographic information system is determining the spatial relationships between features. The distance separating a hazardous waste disposal site and hospital, school, or housing development is an example of a spatial relationship."

"Perspective is the spatial relationship between your position – or rather, the camera’s – and the scene being photographed. Positioning yourself in the right spot can make a significant difference in your composition."

My work addresses the spatial relationship between camera and object and the object in the photograph and the viewer. I've created a spatial tension represented by the cage between the viewer(human) and object(animal).There is a separation of space between the two that is intriguing and I want to explore it more.
