[ NOVEMBER 2 ]
ELABORATION: quotes from studio interview
You walk in to the space and these fans in front of you-- mounted
inside of a wall, illuminated from the back-- start up on your entry. I'm
deciding whether I want to put a curtain in front of it, so people will
go up to look at it and the fans will blow it up, and you get to see
this illuminated fan-fence.
And when you walk out it'll turn off, the curtain will go back down and hide it again, like, it's just for you. That's hopefully what the experience will be.
When I go somewhere I try to look up to see what's up there. Every time I would go into Bargain Barn I'd hear a fan noise and finally I
found the fan it was coming from. It was this huge, huge ceiling fan,
you could see the sky behind it.
It was slowly going, kind of humming, making this ambiance above you that you don't realize 'cause you're in a thrift store. You're not there to be looking up or paying attention to any of these pretty noises, but they totally create your entire atmosphere subconsciously. And I really liked the illumination it had from behind, it was opening up the space.
I'd like to think it's those little things that are what make you have a nice experience in any place, or a bad experience.
So I wanted to zoom into that kind of space and bring it from up there
to in front of you, and have it affect you
with the air, the wind it
will produce, the light. The experience of walking in front of it
instead of having to look up. It'll be right in front of you and it'll
be huge, a you-can't-miss-it kind of experience.
You'll walk in and say, "Why is this so plain?" and then there'll be this dramatic experience. Blown away!
