involvement



Question:
How do I choose what to draw?
So much here. Rome is dense and dense. Beauty everywhere.
Answer:
It all has to do with the notion of ‘Involvement.’
I borrow this concept from the text of Ed Bacon in his book the ‘Design of Cities.’
He references a Francesco Guardi sketch and speaks to the notions that create involvement; 
‘space that creates an all-encompassing experience.’
Rome is full of spaces that involve.
Here are the ingredients:
Meeting the sky
Meeting the ground
Points in Space
Recession of Planes
Design in Depth
Ascent and Descent
Convexity and concavity
Relationship to people
This city is one huge work of art. We are all players in this beautiful City.
Any view will do; one that ‘involves’ is key.
