E " The University of British Columbia Vancouver, Canada Date F£&- 2-1 - ' ** <* {? DE-6 (2/88) ABSTRACT This p r o j e c t began with a d i r e c t e d study looking at l i t e r a r y and a r t i s t i c representations of h i g h l y s u b j e c t i v e understandings of space, of the protagonist's immediate, f a m i l i a r environment. There was an i n t e r e s t i n the k i n d of potency of these proj e c t e d r e a l i t i e s and the ways i n which understandings of scale, p a r t i c u l a r l y extremes of scale, f i g u r e d i n them. The p r e l i m i n a r y work of the t h e s i s involved the making and c o l l e c t i n g of small objects that because of t h e i r symbolic form or because they could be read at m u l t i p l e scales, would i n s p i r e p r o j e c t i o n s of occupation. The work presented focused on c l a s s i c a l perspective and the photographic image i n s e r i e s as a means of representing the space of objects. These are i n t e r i o r s t u d i e s . But i t i s s i g n i f i c a n t that the images or groupings of images are intended to describe a space of a ki n d of n o n - d e f i n i t i v e s c a l e . The i n t e n t i o n i s that the subject be engaged i n d e f i n i n g the nature of the space represented. The images are experiments i n the l i m i t s and p o t e n t i a l s of the representation of a space as d i s t i n c t from the space i t s e l f . The p r o j e c t explores the r o l e of representation i n desc r i b i n g (defining) the subject's understanding of the space represented.
