I notice while perusing my notes that, although I can read and understand the significance of an architectural cross section of a stepwell easily enough, it is incredibly difficult to actually communicate the experience of being underground in words and images. Normally a building has windows, doors, and floors that help orient the viewer to a sense of inside and outside. Here, however, there is no outside, only a layering of insides. How then can the sensation of being ín the earth be represented? Gravity is an important part of the experience, and I explore that in my video’s. In my drawings I discover light is the key structuring factor after all, even more convincingly when the architecture itself is left out: just shadow (= just light).
