Bodies, senses and artifacts

The semester has begun in a new environment, in Rhode Island School of Design.

One course I take conducts an investigation on human factors, by syllabus  “The relationship between the bodies and senses and space in the context of architecture and interior design”. We go to explore how human interaction influences the space by choosing two activities, one for individual and one for collective, and combine them into one monolithic dual artifact.

Working with a sketchbook – something that I do a lot –  became my personal point of research and socializing became the collective one.

Being in a different environment, my spatial behaviour changed – not having a “workstation” at home (a chair and a table) I noticed myself working on the floor. I observed myself transitioning from one plane to another and tried to translate my body movement into a solid form through picture studies. For the collective activity we worked together, rethinking the shape of our individual activities to accommodate socialization and modulation to our body-centric pieces.

Establishing a dialogue between the ground, seating and a working surface, through multiple trials, a dual artifact for this new situation was fabricated.

This semester I had a chance to work on a personal project. I have had this idea of a small lighting piece idling along in my head for quite some time. It has always been a topic of interest for me as lighting as such has an immense power over how one perceives space. The idea started forming when I heard about a class that my acquaintance was having. They were working with prototyping and everyone had to use a metal flip switch for their object which then immediately caught my eye. Taking their brief as a starting point I developed my own challenge to work with comfort lighting.
