Space in Writing.

“a quietly provocative composition that
re-contextualizes the space bar as a
functional signifier of emptiness.”

Another dear series made with keyboard keys is Space in Writing. The first object had this text written on the back:

Seventeen
words
to
describe
seventeen
used
space
bars,
arranged
vertically,
left
aligned
in
a
white
wooden
frame.

So far I created six objects in this series. With every object one space bar is removed from the composition and one word from the description. The second piece came with the text:

Sixteen
words
to
describe
sixteen
used
space
bars,
arranged
vertically,
left
aligned
in
a
white
frame.

As the series continues the last object of the series, #18 would be an empty frame without description.
