There isnt alot on scott wilson anywhere incoulding the libray. So the main part of my resurch has come form the programs above. what im intrested in with wilsons work consering the topics in the programs, is that each section of the painting is placed at a cirtsatin deph with in the image according to the way the section has been approched. as well as techque abustract artist like to use alot of coulr. in wilsons work couler helps posintion the section in a picture.

this picture seems to hit at a window sill. An abstract painting is often a simplforcation of a real image/object.


Definition of suspend in English:Temporarily prevent from continuing or being in force or effect.

This is a pice by Cornelia Parker. Parker is best known for large-scale installations such as Cold Dark Matter: An Exploded View (1991)  first shown at the Chisenhale Gallery in Bow, East London for which she had a garden shed blown up by the British Army and suspended the fragments as if suspending the explosion process in time. In the centre was a light which cast the shadows of the wood dramatically on the walls of the room. This inspired an orchestral composition of the same name by Joo Yeon Sir.

Renowned for her physically immersive and optically dazzling installations. Nike Savvas is Inspired by the vibrant paintings of the post-Impressionists as well as the cheap exuberance of discount plastics and decorations.

Savvas work revouls round lots of seprate compentents and lots of coulr

Yasuaki Onishi, reverse of volume. Artist Yasuaki Oishi used translucent plastic sheets and black hot glue to create a monumental sculpture that looks as if it's floating in space. The artist created a "ghost" of cardboard boxes by draping plastic sheeting over a scaffolding of boxes and then dripping thousands of strands of hot black glue from the ceiling so that the sheets stay in place. Called "reverse of volume RG," the installation uses a process Oishi calls "casting the invisible."

Onishi wanted to create an installation that would change as visitors approached and viewed it from outside of the glass wall to inside the gallery space. Seen through the glass, the undulating, exterior surface and dense layers of vertical black strands are primarily visible. At first glance, standing in the center of the gallery’s foyer, it appears to be a suspended, glowing mass whose exact depth is difficult to perceive. Upon entering the gallery and walking along the left or the right side, the installation transforms into an airy opening that can be entered. Almost like stepping into an inner sanctum or cave-like chamber, the semi-translucent plastic sheeting and wispy strands of hot glue envelop the viewer in a fragile, tent-like enclosure speckled with inky black marks. Visitors can walk in and out of the contemplative space, observing how the simplest qualities of light, shape, and line change

Grafton Architects Desinging with light... baicly making a cube or cube like object out of light. 

Buildings tell the stories of our lives in built form… We walk through and feel spaces with our whole bodies and our senses, not just with our eyes and with our minds. We are fully involved in the experience; this is what makes us human.” (

Idris Khan.  

Khan's work draws from a diverse range of cultural sources including literature, history, art, music and religion to create densely layered imagery that is both abstract and figurative and addresses narratives of history, cumulative experience and the metaphysical collapse of time into single moments. (

Time and Idris Khan. Khan use light to display a section or pice of time. he dose this by taking a picture with a long expoture to display a serires of "moments" all at the same time in the same place. It can be said that he just show one moment just the moment he displayes is sizeable and can be meshured and imagened. He also try to elmnatie time from viusal objects. books and music scores seem to be his favourot. you have to look at the page of a boo in scetions. each section being a word. you then have to look at each section in an oder (left to right) this takes time and covers many pages as the imformation can be dislayed all at once. unlike a picture. then he take music witch askes you to repect this prosses just at a surtian speed as well. Khan plays with these proseses.

He made this image without a camera by placing his hand, a paintbrush, and other objects on a sheet of photographic paper and exposing it to light. While this simple process was practiced by photography's founders in the nineteenth century and was later popularized as a child's amusement, avant-garde artists of the twentieth century revived the photogram technique as a means for exploring the optical and expressive properties of light. With this shadow image of a hand and paintbrush, Moholy-Nagy ambitiously suggests that photography may incorporate, and even transcend, painting as the most vital medium of artistic expression in the modern age.
