The projects in this class are a handle on which we can define and explore our interests in our preferred discipline and materials. With that in mind, I'm going to respond to this space by making a painting; experiencing the space through a painter's eyes. I did a little sketching and I've decided that my approach will be to create a panorama, using multiple panels (maybe on board instead of canvas because of the harshness of the space, although it might be interesting to have a more poetic response to the space). I want to capture the light and colour of the space and it might be interesting to paint it in several sessions to record the various lighting conditions (and evoke a sense of time passing).
