Rachel Whiteread-"mummifying the air in the room"

making positive from negative space, lived in domestic environments (the void of a Victorian house), undeveloped perspectives (looking to fine art- Vermeer); need to physically work out and piece components together; the room for 'ghost' (first image below) had to have a door, window and fireplace; casting a space for sculptures to fit in- the room was built up using plaster and hessian that is further reinforced with a metal skeleton inside.
