Studio study, Habitat 497. Drawing on shutters, tracing paper. 2022

Suzanne Bartos and Juliet Fowler Smith have occupied studios at Articulate since its beginning. In Habitat 497 they incorporate drawing, found objects and other spatial interventions developed in the studio in relationship to the site and individual but overlapping interests. While two distinct works, they share a common interest in expressing the feeling that having a sense of place, safety brings.

There are particular locations at Articulate that I have been drawn to in past works. Heights, corners, airflow and light, on top of a building on top of a hill. Horizons and sky views.

Habitat 497 is a response to this space above Parramatta Road developed on site (in quiet moments) and those in Studio 4 nearby. Trying to imagine past hill views and horizons while watching the cars go by.
Interplaying ideas around inhabiting and Habitats and survival.

Studying ecology , Space- Time saturation is what the Northern Bobwhite* wants and I get that. A place to be where there is unconstrained space to thrive over a decent period of time.
