15.02.21 – 22.02.21
Close In | Competition
OPEN TO ALL ESALA STUDENTS: PGR/PhD/BA/MA
Take a piece of your current work, a piece of work that’s not quite finished, or a part of your previous work that isn’t quite finished with you. Take it apart, take it to pieces. Look for the space in between, halfway up a stair, in the thickness of a window wall, at the threshold of a door.
This is to be the subject for this short study. Close In.
We want you to find a moment in your own work where your imagination can dwell, or where you can dwell in your imagination.Develop the depth of the space, the light in the space, the material of the space, the sense of how it could be to be in the space.
We expect you to make four small pieces of work, a part-plan, a part-section, a selective perspective and a conceptual model – each piece of work mounted at A5 and suitable to survive as a little parcel in the post. Plus four short sentences to explain your work in plain and simple language.
