Embankment – Rachel Whiteread

Rachel Whiteread’s installation, Embankment, was inspired by an old box that she found in her house and is made of white plaster that she shaped around boxes. The minimalist sculpture reminds me of project 1.1 in its ability to create depth and dimension with no color, by adjusting the concentration and position of the boxes. The interactivity of the installation allows it to be seen from many different angles, which can provide a different viewing experience for every person. The piece also explores contrast between order and disorder, which is clear in the separated sculpture sections.
