Dickson enjoys studying social geography and looking at how we experience space throughout our everyday social practices. “Being There/There Being” is an investigation of liminal space or, as Dickson describes it, the transitional space found in doorways, gateways, and the transitional periods of our lives; the areas between absolutes.

“Being There/There Being” creates a negative (liminal) human form between the two pillars when viewed at a distance. Opposite the liminal form is a positive human shape engaging the negative shape. Despite their separation the sculpture is not two forms but the same mind engaged in transition.
