Blue Skies in the Basement

Met with Serena Lin Bush at the site today along with Cody, one of her IT partners. She wanted to check the stairwell pit once again, now that the row of recycled wood timbers has been set in the space. Serena's monitors will be attached to the recycled timbers. She brought white paper cut in the sizes of each of the monitors. Just to check on placement and ease of seeing. She opted not to use the wall behind the stairway. We decided that the stair railings themselves would cover the monitor and it would loose its effectiveness. So all monitors will be flat in the pit.
I still get goose bumps when I think about Serena's piece. Several cameras will be mounted on the roof of the building and will photograph the sky continuously. Cabling will bring the images down to the monitors in the basement. So viewers will see real sky in the bottom of the stairwell and will be able to look up all the way to the top of the stairs four stories high and see that same sky through a skylight. It's a very cool idea.
