Nathalie Hunter had made a series of framed coloured drawings (none larger than 50cm at their widest). She presented these on the floor of one of the bedrooms on the fourth floor. The room was busily decorated in Victorian patterns, in busy imagery of coral and vegetation, in pinks, yellows, and greens (with pinks predominating). The setting worked to make the lightly painted drawings seem cool and calm. Hunter had created imagined panoramas and aerial views of Plymouth using internet resources (Streetview, Flickr etc). In the bedroom the visitor could compare these ink and wash images with the 'real' buildings and locations outside the windows. Showing the works on the floor maintained their orientation to the depicted topography, and in the same moment disorientated the viewer who towered over the drawn streets and water and needed to adjust focus and mode of attention when they looked outside.
