The Space Between

Eileen Hall

The spatial experience of Trunks Close is one of intimacy and closeness, with buildings touching and coming apart creating a palpable tension between scale and light. I wanted to draw out this spirit of the place and make it more tangible and visible through a sculptural drawing of the space between its elements.


Borrowing from my own drawing practice, which is a slow meditative process that uses line and repetition, the expression of the spatial tension in the Close became a reflection of this approach. By using the pipes and pigeon spikes/wires as focal points for the thread I wanted to highlight further the plethora of peculiar elements found in this site.
