RE: Location and Change

In "The Wreckage", the artwork has been purposely placed at an internal site therefore the play of light and shadow is
selected at the discretion of the artist. In the "Topiary Garden", an external location, the changes in light and shade are
completely arbitrary and unpredictable. If the the changes in light and shadow are key players in the composition, how does
the artist consider these influences when selecting an external locations?
