Abstract: The purpose of this thesis is to enable the viewer to participate in spatial conditions and to indicate space time. The influence of Will Insley during the fall of 1968, followed by a study of the writings of Mondrian, helped to clarify an earlier interest in environmental relationships and awareness of movement through space. Mr. Insley's reiteration of the nature and effect of scale and space enabled this student to gain use of these two elements, and to move, independently, into an understanding of space time. As space may be enclosed, segmented, compressed, and extended, so may time be "staked out," directed, speeded-up, and dissipated. Space and time were found to be interdependent and interchangeable. (Height and width could be reduced to space and/or time.) When space was compressed it seemed to become active, and to move vertically. As one moved in space one seemed to move in time; as one moved in time (physically or mentally) one seemed to be "thrown out" into space. Space and time united in a four-dimensional reality: space time.
