For some reason, that just reminds me of when teenagers or young children look straight at you and say "I'm ignoring you." I always feel compelled to respond "No you're not, you just spoke to me." That always seems to receive a decent eye-roll and an over-exaggerated sigh.

In my opinion, the best way to let someone know that you're respecting their request to give them space is... just give them space. If it's what they requested, they'll understand that's why you've gone silent, and not because you're being passive-aggressive with silent treatment.
