As an exercise in coordinate mapping, this string installation transformed space through biased techniques analyzing: Geometry; Light; Sound; View; and Modules. Detailed representations were created through hand drawn studies to in an attempt to accurately depict the space.

This study is a documentation of the North stairwell of the School of Construction Environments. Photographs were taken to produce detailed representations of the stairwell in drawing and model form. Floor plans, sections, and 3d modeling techniques were used to create accurate spatial representations.

The concept of the installation was to analyze light and shadow and its effect in space. The part that interested me the most was the visual distortion created through shadow. The distorted silhouettes abstracted the forms we are all accustom the seeing. An interesting spatial change was created as the projected forms appeared on the adjacent walls. Turning the shadows into solids, the abstracted forms became a dis figuration its past formal attributes.

To further explore the idea and relationship between light and shadow, this narrative tells a story and explores the distortion of form through light. What begins in the stairwell can be further explored in a macro scale creating visual but not physical change.
