From the Field

This visit, I was especially interested in the seasonal changes and shifts in quality of light – and how that impacted the seeming sameness of the site.  There is something intriguing about the lack of seasons in south Florida.  Amidst the warm, muggy air still remaining in December, the space had a very different visual feel than it did under the same humid air in August, which was different still in May.  The heaviness of the intense blue sky seems to have a more desolate or flat quality in the fall/winter than in the spring/summer when that same blue feels much sharper.  The earth, fauna and machinery surrounding the site all take on a very different appearance depending upon these aspects as well as time of day and weather, of course.  Aware of this, I found myself paying attention to spaces that seemed most affected by these subtleties.  A few first edits are below.  (Click images for detail view).
