mLab II - Quotidian Gestures Resequenced


Chez Bushwick: New York City

The intention of this workshop was to analyze gestures we perform on a daily basis that are inherently shaped by our built environment. Opening a door, pulling down the shades or turning on a light switch are performative acts that frequently go un noticed despite their frequency of employment. These action are shaped by the spatial arrangements they activate yet their mutual coexistence is fragmented. In unpacking the embedded actions within each gesture, the goal was to extract essential moments and translate them into a spatial proposal.
