Spaces are conversations between two positive visual forms, an essential binary existence: on, off, on. Often seen as nothing, a space can potentially hold a greater presence than what it is pressed between - only if seen. Inasmuch the space between offers a natural path for our curiosity like a blind stream of water finding its way between stones.
Space is also time based giving us rhythm to music, dance - even the rhythm of how we breathe. The ingredient of time within space adds potency to the argument of the space, giving us its adjective; the space is wide or narrow, dark or light, dangerous or safe.
The concept of between is our human experience of the space within time; it is the plundering of creativity.
Narrow Space Between
If you can hear it, in the narrow space
If you can see it, in the narrow space
Come. Let's go.
If you can follow me, through the narrow space
between, the darkness and the light
where the germ of life is found
unencumbered by our time
there the genius is.
1. Find or imagine a space that you can describe as a 'narrow space between' and allow yourself 10 minutes to journey into the idea.
2. Take with you a handful of words that can be used to unlock the image in your mind. As you journey into your image be mindful of what you find.
3. Reply to the space with a creative action. You might decide to do any of the following: paint a painting, write a song, form a dance, go for a walk
