Negative SpaceSunday, December 19th, 2004
I took a drawing class once, many years ago, in which the instructor talked about "negative space," or drawing the empty space around the object as a way of drawing the object. In a more philosophical sense, it's sometimes easier to see who we are by identifying what we're not. I'm not a very good gardener. I have trouble understanding people. These aren't things that necessarily need to be fixed, they're just glimpses into my character that are perhaps easier for me to see than my "positive space" qualities. What negative spaces do you see around yourself? More to come soon.
