Floor as a space: where does the floor becomes a wall, what exactly makes a chair different from a table, and how do these individual objects influence the space their in. With this curtain/carpet I have shown my interpretations of this ‘gray area’ and what each object could represent. Each individual task is minimized to it’s basic function in order to understand it’s purpose, when linked together within a common context a new space is created. An ever changing ‘living room’ piece which is adapted for the specific role within the household, roll it down and you have a divider of space when needed… roll it over the floor and it becomes a gathering space. It’s a space in itself, and therefore has the ability to become what the user whishes it to be. The vital ingredients are there, minimized to their essence.
A space the dimensions of height, depth and width within all things exist and move.
_grey area of objects
We are used to name the objects around us, or giving it a label, mostly it arises when we get emotionally attached to the object.
What slightest change makes something into something new? When does the object get’s extinguished from this ‘gray area’?
_tables and chairs
Where does the floor becomes a wall, what exactly makes a chair different from a table, and how do these objects influence the space their in?
My research had led me to specific glues that play on this ‘gray’ area that makes these objects one or the other.
