To create the first interation towards a bigger project to develop dynamic and movable spaces and objects. For this project my aim will alow movement to be detected which will have a direct relation to the wall of a room. The impact of a human agent in a installation space, will be translated into a direct movement of the corresponding wall. The person moves one step, the wall also moves towards the person one step. The aim of the full project will be to create dynamic units which morph and compound the person’s perception of the space around them. The way we perceive our environments are due to many factors, some we are taught through science and also our own experiences and awerness of what a our environment should do. A wall is usually static to keep a roof up and chair is a usefull item usually for sitting on. My aim is to create spaces and objects which don’t adhere to the same rules, allowing people to question there own assumptions about the world around them and ultimately questioning what should we believe is real or just our own perceptions.

At first the wall is at the far end of a space. Then when the person moves forward the wall moves the same amount in your direction. If you decide to move backwards the wall will also move backwards. If you stop, so does the wall. The person can only ever walk half way down the corridor, never able to achieve the full potential that the space offers you at the first instance.
