Seascape

A room approximately 30' x 30' which can only be approached by going up steps to the door and walking down a wooden ramp inside. Materials from the beach are laid out on the floor between a trough of water at one end and paper cliffs at the other. A fan with pieces of newspaper attached to it, which click together as it blows, moves from side to side ruffling the water. Many of the original features of the room were preserved or worked on. The wall above the trough had horizontal lines on it which suggested horizons. The wall next to the ramp was reminiscent of a seaside shelter or public toilet. A large blue canvas is hung along the windows at just above head height so that daylight enters the room, but the spectator can only see the sky and not the urban landscape outside. There is a strong seaside smell in the room.
