Spatial Relations
In contrast to spaces, being portions of space having a particular form, spatial relations exist in space where space is regarded as a kind of universal receptacle or matrix. The spatial relations of the components of sculpture are their relative directions and positions in this receptacle or matrix. They come into being across space between components that are not physically connected and give rise to tensions between them. They also exist between components that are physically connected with each other, in which case they give rise to a movement of the forms in space. | Contact Us | List Your Art | List Your Art Gallery | Site Map
