On these web pages VAL has begun an Internet project using the
boarded up windows of vacant buildings (or partially vacant), making positive use of negative space. We have been
experimenting with digital artists from around the world involving them in fast, high profile experiments. We are
proposing to print a selection of the various ideas coming in and mounting those prints in the windows, switching
images every two or three months.
VAL would like to get people thinking creatively about ways
to use negative space in positive ways, bringing art out onto the street, creating an exciting interchange using
digital art which can easily involve high school seniors in computer art programs with digital artists from around
the world. Kind of a low budget, world school using negative space in a positive way.
Together we can impart integrity to a world which is so divided by
specialists, nobody having the scope of view or time to step back and create in a holistic way. Artists of all kinds
function as roving free radicals knitting good things together for its own sake.
