READ TO LIFE! Read the chapter on Saraceno and any other two chapters featuring the artists mentioned below.

PROJECT: Depict it.
Use a camera to document the affect of wind and/or water upon an object or location. This evidence can be discovered as a ‘ready-made’, as when storm water has gouged out a gully or wind has bent the branches of a tree. Or it can be contrived. For instance, you might blow on powder or saturate a ball of cotton.
