I have a project for which I needed a room drawing which includes an observation area, from which between one to three people can observe a number of other people working below them.
In response to this remit, my artist drew a barrel (admittedly a fairly large barrel, of the wooden sort, upon which it might be possible to squeeze two people, if they both stood on one leg). In the email accompanying the barrel sketch, she wrote:
"In the end I created a barrel for the observation area. What do you think about it?"
To my mind it appears that this barrel is somewhat outside the original remit. What do other people think? How best to respond?
(I exchanged 28 emails with the artist about the project outlining everything I could think of before we began. Including some fairly detailed financial negotiations.)
