Space was an interesting concept we studied during the Field School. We looked at landscapes nonstop, looked at each other nonstop, looked at each other looking at each other looking at landscapes, nonstop. It surrounded us and filled us as we examined what filled it, what surrounded it. While we spent a fair amount of time attempting to produce our own work and exist in our own spaces, the closeness was obvious and inevitable.
Matthew stayed with me every weekend between Field School activities. This really kept me in the camper mindset. I returned home each week looking at the places I exist in completely new light, almost as a foreigner. Re-emersion into familiarity while maintaining alien observation skills is hard to do for long. Feelings of place from the past are sifted through the spacial observation filter we had been working on all week, creating something simultaneously old and new, a little bit like Matthew.
