Today I have been observing the light and movement and recording some of the sounds in the different spaces of the building. It has been beautifully clear sunny day and I was initially struck how the light came into the library dancing through the leaves of the tree outside casting constantly moving shadows into the room.
The hum of the air conditioning cocooned me from the noise and activity in the surgery. It felt that I was nearer the sky and the outside elements and allowed me thinking time away from the buzz of the surgery below. It’ll be a conducive space to work and create in.
As I walked through the spaces of the building I began to notice that each space has its own distinct and changing, transient sounds. I recorded the sounds on each floor and was drawn to the smaller details of the spaces.
The lights going on an off on the emergency help point attracted my attention.
