Question 1.   At the end of the video, Buchanan is at work on a sculpture  of a shack that seems to resist having a door.  What, in the nature of a  shack, demands a door?  What, in the nature of art, frees Buchanan from  the necessity of having a door? Question 2.   Buchanan has said that she considers her shacks "portraits"  -- "I'm interested in their shapes and how they're built and how they reflect  the people who built them. ..It's the[ir] spirit that comes through the forms."   Think about the shack she builds in the video, and the drawing she  executes --- how do they reflect the people who built them?  How are they  "portraits?"
