Site plan and list of (yes, big!) drawings

Chunk of London, starting point of the concrete city of the dead in the project: Whiteread’s Studio, on Bethnal Green Road.

List of big drawings, in sequence:
1. starting point, current situation: plan of existing cemeteries
2. [zooming in] texture/atmosphere existing cemeteries
3. [scale of tomb, sarcophagus, mausoleum] Whiteread process, casting
4. [same scale, spreading it, ‘mass production’] making of concrete city of the dead – scale of casket
5.  [zooming out] making of concrete city of the dead – scale of city, including new google earth view
6. [getting inside] experience and ‘life’ of concrete city of the dead with perspective, details, events
7. [zooming out, moving forward in time] relationship, interaction, overlap, separation, similarities & differences between city of living and city of the dead

Developing them both in 2d and 3d, for now focusing on this concrete city of the dead in the few blocks just around Whiteread’s studio.

    Good that you have the list, now also set out a visual/sketched story board (do each one on an A4 so you can lay them out in sequence) so you can track where the stories can overlap across the separate drawings. Will also let you understand the scales you will want to work with, the images you make, the references, and materials etc you need to find in order to make the backgrounds, foregrounds, etc….
