Space And Movement In Art – Ernesto Neto

‘The focus on how the viewer experiences the work and the desire to provide an intense experience for them is a dominant theme in installation art.’

This year i have really found a love for our interaction with the space we occupy. I have always been into installation art (small amount of site-specific) and they way it fits into a space/ compliments the space and over all changes the feel and effect of some where. With a piece of installation that looks at movement and space where participants and views have to walk though for the time they are in the piece you can change there reality and ways of thinking with the way you construct and build on the effect of the piece.


Ernesto Neto

In his installations he often invites the viewer to touch, smell and walk inside its inner space which instantly transports the view into a other worldly space within the work. His work focuses on the constructions of social space and the natural world by inviting physical interaction and sensory experience. His work makes you think about your own movement, physical presents and interaction with in the piece, but it also works as sculptural pieces that often flow and compliment the architecture of buildings they reside in.

His work links well with mine as I am still fascinated with the way the audience becomes part of the walk through interaction and our similar materials and use of them. Although the feel of his materials can sometimes be quite soft and inviting creating a sense of comfort. In my work I want to create an almost inviting feel to the work but using more violent materials that will make you feel and vulnerable once inside.



“Neto works with abstract installations which often take up the whole expositional space, creating spatial labyrinths in which fine membranes –stretched taught and fixed at various points hang down here and there in the shape of enormous droplets.”
