Hermit on stage

Observatory charcoal smFinally there: I have been given the keys to the Observatory. Its architectural raison êtré is clear. It is a beautiful structure; its intent expressed through its form. The charred wood exterior really tactile. Its ability to rotate intriguing, giving the feeling of floating above the ground. But what to make of it as a working space? Will the art that is produced from here have as distinct a form as the building itself? Hmmm… On first examination the space appears as a hybrid; somewhere between hermitage, laboratory, observatory and theatre stage, the front of each pod a proscenium arch. Last night it was freezing: need to get the charcoal heater working!
