Space + Installation
April 26, 2017
Opening reception @ 5pm
Presented by Justin Foo, Elie Boutros and Stephanie Cheung (B.Arch '18)
Doors is an investigation of the threshold. We investigated the door as a hinged, sliding, or revolving barrier that is designed to provide both enclosure and circulation. We feel that it is taken for granted within a space but seldom ever critically examined. We intend to scrutinize the door as the critical intersection between space, movement and the human figure. Some of the feelings, associations and experieces of crossing this man-made threshold are distilled and captured in this interactive installation.
