I wanted to respect, embrace, and continue this natural movement within this massive hallway. I chose to use the small wall spaces book-ending the long expanse for 2 reasons: to stretch the line as far as possible to really feel that expanse and also to roughly reference the bracketed quote panels featured, in relief, on the historical exterior of Lincoln Hall.

Lifesaver Movement in e is based on the beginning sequence of the infinite number e. Sequence reads left to right, or north to south. This image looks through the north doorway. The next 8 images will walk you, slowly, towards the south end.
