In my initial drawing I wanted to frame and explore the accounts of time and events that occurred during the walk, into on single framed composition bringing together a series of temporal events in space.
Whilst further investigating the parallel events that took place, I started looking at the staircase of Whitechapel Library and the events that run into each other in my drawing, this further drawings intent to represent the temporal sequence of events adding my final composition.
Im taking the stairs as an object and as a starting point for my 3 dimensional investigations, as they represent a metaphor for temporal and physical passage; it also represents movement as per Duchamp’s Nude Descending a Staircase No.2, and also taking MC Escher’s Relativity as a precedent and exploring the relation between spaces, movement and events that pass through / run / lead into each other, suggesting the idea of “route” through time/events.
I would like to study the staircase as an “object”. On the sketches bellow im looking at the juxtaposition of events and time, the juxtaposition between space and structure, not only through materiality but also through its presence, its accounts of time and transitions. The shaping of spaces through opening in volumes and the juxtaposition between the reduced part and the volume itself ( the negative and positive).
I started with the sketches and then a first attempt to create a 3d representation of my initial idea below.
