thinking about the format
As I was thinking about content, I was also thinking about the physical space and how the content of the drawing would be influenced by the size of the space in which it would be installed. I had determined that my initial impression that the entrance wall was the best opportunity was correct, and it was going to take a large drawing to "hold" that wall. In thinking about this and sketching it in my sketchbook, I began to think a diptych format (a format I hadn't used in years) would be appropriate both in terms of content and in terms of responding to the architectural demands of the space.
