My inspiration for this drawing was scopophobia, the fear of being watched. I always suspect that someone can see inside my large well lit windows at night. I was hoping to have more lit windows in my photos, but once I started experimenting and using flash, my neighbors scopophobia must have kicked in because everyone turned off the lights and drew the blinds.
I chose this location because of the length of the boardwalk. I used sticks to mirror the linear element that originally attracted me to this landscape. My goal was to have the sunrise cast long shadows down the boardwalk, but the last two days were too overcast.
This mark was inspired by the little detail in the architecture of the back of Ponce De Leon Hotel. The bricks around the concrete formed the shape of a cross. With that idea I decided to instead of make the shape from the outside, I’d fill in the shape using the materials from around the gate itself. The cross was made using mostly sticks found, while also using some branches, leaves, and Spanish moss to re-create the darker tones that appeared in the concrete.
