Architecture exists in an unconscious realm for the everyday user.
We see our histories appear on our cities after years, but rarely do we see our 1:1 impact on space in our everyday lives. This projects aims to reflect the impact of user presence onto architecture, therefore creating a more thoughtful awareness and engagement with one's environment.
This project works with transparency, closeness, timing, and reveal. It is an intricate looping of copper wire as abstracted image of a queer face, inspired by a trans artist, Pace Taylor.
As users in the space move not only closer to the form, but remain close, they will trigger the sensors to then start heating the copper wire which in turn, changes the color of the resin its cast within from dark to light. This is a project that reveals more of itself to you the longer you choose to engage.
