I proposed to create a large installation in the stairwell of the gallery from the first floor up to the second floor. The diagrams below are what I submitted to outline my proposal; the colors shown are purely to identify the structure and layering.

"It is said that despite its many glaring (and occasionally fatal) inaccuracies, the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy itself has outsold the Encyclopedia Galactica because it is slightly cheaper, and because it has the words "DON'T PANIC" in large, friendly letters on the cover."

The space became warmer, darker, and felt smaller with the plastic coverings. The floor remained sticky from spray adhesive so that when my class was in the space for the duration of my 30 minute critique, we became very aware of the sounds our feet made as they stuck and re-stuck to parts of the floor. Having lowered the ceiling to 7' (from it's actual height of about 12') we could look through holes in my plastic ceiling and see the building behind it as well as the light cast from above.

Here's a new drawing I just finished of a weird little squirrel.
I saw this silhouette of a squirrel in a Pennsylvania Dutch painting at the Barnes Foundation. Since photography and sketching aren't allowed, I went straight back to my studio and drew what I saw as quickly as possible. The features turned into my own derpy version of the squirrel's face and claws.
