Having a little difficulty solving the problems with these models. Stuck in the Orford Ness landscape with self-doubt.
Investing many hours trying to create models of the structures in the Orford Ness landscape. I hope to then use these along with the lighthouse model to dislodge these structures, using the 'real' footage of the structures and examining them through their model forms.
But, I am running into problems:

Making the models- not achieving the desired look, need stronger card and paint.
(this is a practical problem that can be solved)
The footage- worried about the ‘shape’ of this proposed video. 
How will I present the footage of the models?
Is this going to work? (these are problems that require good judgement and problem solving) Innate skills. Do I have these?

Spending time drawing the strange structures that jut out of the Orford Ness landscape.

The Orford Ness lighthouse !





Lighthouse completed,  my eyes are sore, I can hardly see from looking at such tiny pieces of card.

Day 3:
 Look what’s just arrived!






Before setting out on my caravan residency I came across David Hathaway of Paper Shipwright. He's been making beautiful card models of British Lighthouses that you are able to buy and construct.
I ordered the Orford Ness Lighthouse.

Day 2:
Some of the things I have experienced/read/recorded:
boating lake
fishermen, a man with a kite, three people running
Joseph Beuys
bitter
sharp air
a dead pub


I feel a little like a squirrel - collecting, searching and gathering. 
Allowing an ease of thought, steering clear of methodologies and rules.


Listening to that core dense matter that sits in the bottom of my gut.


And then, parallel to this,


I seem to be devising a plan for this residency.

Slightly daunted by time devoted to creative output.
What does this mean? And what am I hoping to achieve.
