For this piece, one stool will be placed in a room. As a participant enters the room, I will tell them there are two stools in the room that they must find. One of the stools does not exist. From there on, I will track the movement of the participant throughout the environment. The piece contains several conversations, one of which being the conversation between the participant and the environment. Once I have gathered enough data, I will create a visual representation of participants’ interaction with the physical stool and the environment.
This piece is a combination of two things commonly used for the act of holding: a hand, and a bowl. It was digitally modeled through a combination of Poser, Blender, and Autodesk 123D Make, and then laser cut into 40 layers of interlocking birch plywood.
