Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Schelling said, ‘architecture is music in space, like a frozen music’. This reveals a similarity in the processes of creation between music and architecture and this similarity could be extended to the making of art and dance. Most of the words below can be applied to each creative form.

Structure and composition ….

Movement, rhythm, dynamic, tone and colour ….

But what really interests me are the differences. Music, architecture and dance are temporal – they happen over time. Painting and sculpture are static – they can be seen (if not understood) at a glance. How can a notion of time (sound and music) be translated to a static medium?

Here are some of my sketchbook drawings/thinkings that consider how the time dimension could become a spatial  one….
