Exploring Negative Space: The Womb of Shape with Marina Soria
In this workshop we will explore the use of positive and negative space. We will begin by using an experimental alphabet or a formal alphabet with a personal twist and will find new ways to work with the positive and negative shapes within a page or piece. The balance of positive and negative space is the key to creating aesthetic compositions. Using our own words, haikus or two or three short poems, we will assemble our work in a simple Japanese bound book.
