MY PROJECT IS ABOUT NON-PLACES, AND TRANSITIONAL PLACES IN PARTICULAR.

THESE ARE NEVER FINAL DESTINATIONS, BUT ONLY TRAVELED THROUGH.

THROUGHOUT MY PROCESS, I DISCOVERED A PARADOX THAT BECAME THE MAIN FOCUS FOR THIS PROJECT:

THE FACT THAT PEOPLE TEND TO FEEL AT HOME IN NON-PLACES, EVEN THOUGH THESE ARE IMPERSONAL, ALIENATING SPACES.


WHY DO PEOPLE EXPERIENCE A FEELING OF COMING HOME IN SUCH SPACES?

I FOUND THAT THE COMFORT BROUGHT BY NON-PLACES IS ROOTED IN THEIR UNIVERSAL APPEARENCE.

IT DOES NOT MATTER WHERE YOU ARE TRAVELING;

AIRPORTS, TRAIN OR SUBWAY STATIONS WILL ALWAYS LOOK THE SAME.


THIS INVESTIGATION RESULTED IN A 3 METER WIDE 360 DRAWING OF A NEVER-ENDING NON-PLACE,

BASED ON EXISTING NON-PLACES FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.

I WANT MY AUDIENCE TO EXPERIENCE THE EERIE FEELING BROUGHT BY THESE SPACES,

AS WELL AS THE FEELING OF FAMILIARITY, AND COMING HOME.
