Visual Poems of Life

We’re building a studio for my husband and he’s created all the plans. I noticed a visual poem when I was standing by his desk for a moment, in a diagram for heated floor tubing that was on top of a pile of papers. Then I found another as below, and two more in the building designs.

Above, “exhibit b) plan for wire mesh” is the full page diagram, not cropped or altered at all; and “exhibit c) music in the elevations” is made from edited details in the building plans, shot with a macro lens. Below, “exhibit d) reference-x” is another closeup of the building plans, without modification except for cropping.

Finally, here is the piece I started with — there was a comment: “I’m imagining the slightly warmer and slightly cooler parts of the floor, determined by a secret poem which people standing on it can hardly guess at” from PfcEx and I thought that was a beautiful way to look at it. Plus, I’m so excited about the idea of feet on this floor.
