Third Space: A Multi-Media Jamming Dive

MEGA Magazine
March 1998

Third Space was conceived last January 1998 as an art project that uses the physical and conceptual form of a house as material in imagining a Third Family involved in contemporary art education and practice. As producer, it stimulates exploration, creation and innovation; as distributor, it provides exhibition, exchange and evaluation; as subject vis-a-vis object, it documents "household images and imaginations" into a "family album" of artistic possibilities. Art to the Third Power.

Located within a residential community in Quezon City, Third Space is an artist's home envisioned as a alternative arts school, gallery and performance venue, library and studio space that encourages and develops the critical mind and the creative spirit amongst people of diverse backgrounds, media and persuasions.

It serves as a laboratory for emergent and vanguard talents who are not yet established or are not embraced by the mainstream, or those who have found success commercially but wish to experiment in other directions. It is an independent unit living on a guerilla existence and has a three year life span: Third Space will cease to exist by January 2001...
