Contour line drawing (and Gaston Bachelard)

A great quote by Gaston Bachelard from his book The Poetics of Space:
Immensity is within ourselves. It is attached to a sort of expansion of being that life curbs and caution arrests, but which starts when we are alone. As soon as we become motionless, we are elsewhere; we are dreaming in a world that is immense. Indeed, immensity is the movement of motionless man.

Do not underestimate the significance of just sitting still--something this assignment forces you to do for a time.
