Text Block (12)

Anonymous people had been asked to erase pages from the 246 paged issue of Homme Vogue from 1986. The erasing took 5 years and involved over 250 participants. I was attracted towards how white space in Capurro's vogue was used to erase content and create a pause which I found refreshing because of the removal of the busy colours and advertisements leaving behind emptiness. 

From this particular research I became interested in utilising whit e as a way of removing and creating in a literal way with white and also in an abstractive style through maybe performance or installation.
