A framing of space like a line might wrap around the surface of blank paper in a drawing. Sculpture is traditionally about gravity, weight, volume, form, and the three dimensions.
Here, the sculpture is all volume; weightless and transparent so that you see through to the surrounding environment. The act of looking at and through the surface is more akin to how one might apprehend a painting or even a building.
A "looking-through" space. The space or void inside the sculpture becomes almost visible through its framing. 'Nothing' is given aura by encasing it. 'Nothing' becomes matter, even content.
