1.Project title: Leave A Window Open For Me
For this project, I’m aiming to create an installation that has space within a box build with mirror acrylic sheets and wood. It is meant to be filled with mirrors to form a room that has infinite reflections. It is meant to reflect my own experience in new york when I was going through an emotional break down for a long period of time. I was suffering from insomnia and depression that I had no motivation to do anything, the window was the only thing that I stare at the most, from day to night, from rain to shine.
I managed to step out of the emotional trap eventually, but looking out of the window seemed to become one of my daily routines. Except for this time, things have changed.
There will be a 3D printed bed placed in the middle of the installation to represent my room and my mental status. One side of the board would have a cutout and play the role of the window, which will have the led matrix panel placed behind it.
The audiences are expected to observe the installation from the peek hole at the front board.
