he Screenplay Bench project is created for the Dwell on design 2012 festival in Los Angeles, California. The concept for this project mainly explores the use of materials which plays with visual perception by weaving around the lightweight steel frames to create an optical illusion. The steel framework with the rope forms a thickened undulating screen made up of dense line work. The screen wall is made up is seen as a series of patterns which is recognized by the viewer and there is a fourth dimension as the viewer walks
‘As the viewer moves around the wall, its three-dimensional qualities reveal a more complex system of deep sectional cavities, twisting surfaces, and material densities.’ around the installation which reveals its complex nature, oscillating between series of twisted surfaces and by the intriguing play of cavities and material densities. Thus, this creates an intention of provoking a sense of curiosity as it slowly reveals its form and complexity through physical and visual engagement with the installation.
