SHAPE SHIFT for The PROJECT 2015
SHAPE SHIFT is an experience based installation that aims to re-establish a connection to the ritual of play.
As a group of multidisciplinary designers/artists, quite often we feel disturbed by the unplugged wire around our collective neck. You can change the world by initiating change within yourself, so we are determined to just give it a go! We believe that you learn from experience and if we test our talents, skills and knowledge, we will transform innovative ideas into immediate action.
Participants are encouraged to enter SHAPE SHIFT and connect with the playful world that has been delicately formed around them either as an observer, a contributor, or both. The installation consists of a series of bold shapes in space that push the viewer to enhance sensory awareness of his/her environment; shifting the viewers mind into ‘play’ mode. These shapes will evolve organically over the course of the event as layers of dense textures and patterns are applied.
SHAPE SHIFT will encourage and challenge the public to think with their hands by allowing them to contribute to a collective experience. What we bring into our awareness will exercise the muscle. Working in conjunction with both artists, the public will have the opportunity to transition in and out of play, creating unknown possibilities with freedom, authenticity and fun.
