inhabited geometries in studio at Obras – posted October 11th, 2015 at Obras in Portugal

Here are 25 selected images from the 659 images that photographer Luis Branco took in the studio at the Obras Foundation in Portugal where I am working, no editing yet – just cropping. I hope to make this into a suite of 5 images of “inhabited geometries.”  After this set of images I left the studio and went to the castle. This is departing from Helena Almeida’s methodology of working in the studio always. I was discussing my interests and methods as opposed to Almeida’s methods and interests with Cyd. She said something like this – “she (Helena) creates the object with her body, and you (Sherry) relate to the space of the object with your body.” Perhaps this relates to the fact that Almeida was trained as a painter and I am trained as a sculptor and in architecture and as an installation artist. Luis Pintasilgo assisted and Cydney directed me in gestures and performance. Luis Branco the photographer had to go up and down the ladder many times for the 659 images. I am very grateful to all three of them. I will now take these ideas and constructions into the landscape surrounding Obras and the castle.

  1. I particularly like the images with the chair…but all are fascinating. Look forward to hearing and seeing all. Love from Barbara
