“AN OPENING IS A PORTAL TO ANOTHER WORLD.” The purpose of my thesis is to allow the audience (or the user) to creatively interact with a physical space. The “in-between” spaces - such as gaps between doors, a tiny sliver between blinds, an alleyway between two houses or high-rise buildings - provide a canvas for creativity. From my installation, the viewer is able to “peer” through these in-between spaces into a completely different world.
Remember back then, when a little crack in your closet door meant that a monster was peeking out at you, waiting for a time to strike? I want viewers to realise that in between our physical spaces - the cracks, the holes, the gaps, the imperfections - are canvases for imagination. Putting the effort into interpreting any piece immediately creates new meaning to the work. So it’s okay to see that dragon’s eye peeking out from that pothole, because it is up to you and what you make of your surroundings.
