Summerschool space, form, light / Boukje Klaver
STRING STRUNG STRUNG
Space Form and Light
to hang something so that it stretches in a long line,
to thread objects on a string,
to be arranged a long a line,
to add items to one another to form a series or coherent whole
Space is elemental.
Space is understood ﬁrst through our ability to perceive - our ﬁve senses.
Whether these are the landscapes we walk through,
the cities we inhabit,
or the buildings we live work and play in - the perception of space deﬁnes our experiential existence.
Form deﬁnes space.
Our experiences are organised through the perception of deﬁning elements such
as points lines and planes.
These cues help us organize and understand our surroundings so we can function within them.
Light clariﬁes our surroundings.
By reﬂecting, revealing, and accenting the forms around us.
It oﬀers individual contrast and color, warmth and shade, security and sometimes fear.
