new areas of the site are still being opened up through the completion of more scaffold runs. recently i’ve been able to access the southern side of the sowter mill. the scaffolding facilitates both work on the roof and the windows.
climbing the access stairs, i know they are sturdy and solid and everything is ok. carefully i make each step count. i make my way onto the scaffold boards. again these are solid and ok and every so often a warped board moves creating a sound and a moment to look down to ensure all is ok – which it is.
as i walk around to the north facing side the wind gets up and i stand to experience the bracing nature of this. i had a similar experience the first time i went up the scaffold on the front of the building. over time i become more familiar and more confident.
of late i’ve noticed i’m more confident in speaking to those working on site. like them, my focus has kept me in my little work bubble. having become aware of this, i’ve begun to make opportunities to speak to the work people on site to explain what i’m doing there. what i’ve found is there is an over riding interest and enthusiasm for what the museum is doing and how what i’m doing fits into that.
i’m pleased with how this is progressing. recently i’ve adapted my working practice to make it easier to monitor the sound recording on site and this in turn has seen a time improvement in doing the initial work in post.
the 360 camera i sent away to be repaired has returned and now has a new fault. i’ve reported this and await further updates.
the building of the civic hall has been gaining momentum of late and i’ve been concentrating on this. soon the steel will arrive with something soon to follow.
