Negative Space

Posted in TM: Object by Lina A.Hadi on February 13, 2011

Is the negative space the predecessor? Can one call the blank page negative space? Or is the initial void a nothingness, a mere idea or potential of what could be, and becomes negative space as the positive takes over, receding into a secondary afterthought as a tangible form is created?

If negative space is simultaneously constructed as the counter form to the positive form,  is a tension born between the two entities, an equal and opposite force, holding each form in its place?

How does one determine what is negative and what is positive?
