CONTEMPORARY POLISH SCULPTURE

Centre of Polish Sculpture 

The sculpture I saw this summer holidays in Centre of Polish Sculpture in Oronsko. I was fascinated by the possibility for a designer to create a white space and the way it interacts with the surrounding. "White" itself is hardly ever visible in nature in its pure colour. This comparison makes me think of white as a creation made by human- designer. It has a form. It is visual. It is clear. There is a space creator.

FRIEZE FAIR

This is an installation art I saw at Frieze Fair. What struck my attention is the how the white space behind the object creates clear message of an art work. The other interesting thing is "no space" between structure's elements. The "no space", because of the white background becomes "white space". I like the idea of an open form of the structure, which gives different perspectives depending on a background as well as depending on the viewers position.

WHITE SPACE contextual practice 15.10

The most successful from yesterday's session was a creation of visual structures. By experimenting with a contrast between white and black space I learned about designer's possibility to decide about the importance of different aspects of an object. I also learned about the possibility to create a space. Visual experiments and creation of my own structures were the most interesting for me. On this base I have built my manifesto, which is about creation of a white space. White space for me is a medium to convey or explore your own thoughts. Designers as a creators of our surrounding have the possibility to interact with the viewers by giving them a chance to interpret the space.

This study made me come up with a manifesto of what white space is for me. I wanted to show two aspects of use of white space I explained above. My thesis was that white space is a space to convey or express your thoughts- depending on if the viewer express himself in white creation or if it’s a background for some other message. In both cases I think white space give the viewer possibility to concentrate on the clear communication. When I think of a space creator I can not think about an architect. Basing on my research I decided that my project will depict exhibiting art. 

I designed an art museum. What was important for me so that the white space would be visible both in the inside as a background for let’s say sculpture exhibition and from the outside as an architectural form. I wanted the building to be open for the outside this is why I came up with an idea of glassy wall. The idea for an architectural structure comes the models I made during my teaser chapter. White lines construction remind me of constant flow of thoughts.

The starting point for my project was study on how the white space interacts with an objects and other colors. I explored the opportunity the white space gives while being contrasted to black. I thought about a white space as a clear background on which you can exhibit an object. In the other hand I thought about white space itself as a created form.
