First Blog & A Negative Space Party

This is the first blog I have ever written. So far so good. Once I figure out how to add pictures and videos I'm sure it'll be a breeze. The hard part for me will be the regular posting, as many times I have tried to keep a diary of sorts and every one of them died a death shortly after.

Our first project was a cross-year party project. This involved each group being given an artist to be inspired by. Artists included: Bill Viola, Heath Robinson, Van Gogh, Alexander Calder, Picasso, Jean Tinguely, Marcel Duchamp, Rebecca Horn, and the artist who influenced the party we prepared; Rachel Whiteread.

The sculptress primarily focuses on the aspect of negative space. We included a large white cube, a response to her Embankment sculpture and the space we were given to work within. Surrounded by black balloons, another reflection of space, or rather, lack of.
