THe GReaT GLaSS eLeVaToR:  NIGHT LIGHT 

Natalie Harrity, Ivy Hunnicut, Will McQuillan, Anabel Silver and Jessica Young

For many of us, Night Light is our first-ever installation project. We played around with how light interacts with three-dimensional surfaces, taking inspiration from the idea of perspective. A “nightlight” is a small lamp that is usually used to relieve one of the uneasiness of complete darkness. Quite comically, the shadows cast on the multitude of blank stares and various facets may prompt an opposite feeling--one of being unsettled. The installation consists of a series of plaster faces mounted to the walls of the GReaT GLaSS eLeVaToR, with two lanterns suspended in the middle of the room. Participants are encouraged to swing the lanterns so they project moving shadows onto the plaster faces.

THe ReDRooM: THE WATER CLOSET

Sanna DeBosse, Nora Robinson and Julia Tanier

Our installation is attempting to surround the viewer with the feeling of water. Not actual water, as our boundaries have been limited by the structure of the building. There are, however, lots of other textures we have incorporated to insinuate the feeling of water. We gathered them in search of the perfect feeling of H2O. Our main idea was to make the bathroom a bath for the soul.
