Positive Negatives

The series Positive Negatives work around the idea that the negative space pointed to in gesture acts as an informative visual. I have become interested in capturing, preserving and representing this temporal information in a way that it can be analysed and reflected upon. In this project, I am interested in documenting the negative spaces created in gesture separate from the the positives that define them. The forms in Positive Negatives where formed by the movement of my hands, based on captured video, around a malleable form. The source material and movements were based on the description of and reaction to an imagined interior form. The movements of my hands created forms which I them manipulated and abstracted, taking liberties to include characteristics of the forms I imagined.
