Abstract: The thesis consisting of perspective drawings, models, and a floor piece was the outgrowth of a desire to convert negative space, present in one of my own grid-cube constructions, into a positive dimensional form. Theoretically, if the negative space in a given structural form is as important as the positive space, a positive dimensional form could reasonably and effectively be formed from it. The grid-cube construction was not shown as a part of the exhibition as it was felt that its design was made evident through the process of the thesis development. The exhibition was not retrospective of all work executed while in the graduate program, but simply demonstrated the evolution of a single concept that emphasized visual order.
