Demolition drawings 5 May 2011

A major demolition is underway next to our office. Today they broke through the ground level into the basement leaving a ragged rectangle. The remains of the reinforcing bars reminded me of stray warp and weft threads.

I tried a ‘blind’ drawing of the hole. (A small technical difference is that ‘blind’ drawings are made by drawing while looking only at the scene of interest, but not at the page).

Inspired I took the step into stitching.
