Photocubism: 1911 Lobby
What I wanted to convey in this composition was the sense of open space and movement. These two qualities are sensed when one enters the 1911 Lobby. It is a grand open space filled with light at day. Many students use it just to pass by, but it’s worth the time stopping by to grab a snack, study, or just relax for a minute in between classes.
The composition looks symmetrical, which I made it more from the previous one by adding more pictures to the top-left side of the composition to match the side of the top-right side. This, I think, unifies the piece even more and your eyes follow the lines that appear in the floor, the windows, the columns, and the simple linear mouldings of the Lobby.
I stood facing the Court of the Carolinas and I made the carpet a little bigger to give a sense of place; something that was also suggested by a fellow student. I also took some close ups of views from windows, the main door, and also of some chairs to give different perspectives; therefore incorporating space and time.
