The Positive Void
Negative space is created whenever an object or shape or form is created. It is the space unoccupied by these creations.
The perception that Arlington House and to some extent Margate itself, is negative space was an idea that we wanted to challenge.
The Positive Void creates the opportunity for people to interact and aware of the fight for sustainable and positive redevelopment of Arlington House. The suggestion of a person departing from the cast emphasises how peoples lives are affected by decisions and the feeling of tension and anxiety we witnessed from our visit. We developed the cast further into a concrete solid object, to accentuate the idea that negative space can be converted into positive space
