Rachel Whiteread fills in the spaces between walls - ghosts and memorials, solid unspoken places, making the negative space positive. But what about the negative space between people? The solid tangible tense space, pieces.

Whiteread's drawings with correction fluid show the traces of where lines were, but those lines don't show between human beings - the words that were thought and never said, those things uncompleted. You can't see what might have been.
