This is the first of many vistas into the Collective Selfportrait
(aka the architectural site)
The vistas represent each Viewer’s (the people I asked: what is this a drawing of?) subjective view
Separately these subjective views see only a small part of the truth, together they form the whole (the architectural site).
The site as a whole is comprised of all these different parts/elements people saw in my self portrait. Because they are always looking through their own filter (literally the blood vessels, figuratively their subjective view), their interpretations are in essence also a self portrait (self portrait inception!)
So, these vistas are a representation of what one viewer sees, one viewer sees only a piece of the whole, the viewer’s sight has blind spots.
These blind spots might very well be the parts on the site that other people do see. The blind spots refer to the other subjective views / vistas.
They appear either in silhouette or are completely unrecognizable and obscured by clouds.
The printed vista’s will have mirror paper there where the silhouettes are. Whoever then views the vista sees him/herself reflected in the vista’s, this is a metaphor for how we fill in those blind spots with our own interpretations, our own self portraits.
I’m also looking at references for how to draw a map of my site, here are some of them. The site map will then refer with indicators of location to the vistas.
