Creating an experience through scenes

From a single point perspective, representing the viewpoint of a person within a space; this phase of the project  was aiming to generate an experience within the viewer. In each of these scenes a different angle is taken on the overall inhabitable space – each taken from the inside of a negative spatial volume which can be perceived by the contours of the initial object from which these geometric volumes were subtracted. The purpose was to provoke a thought process of analysis of the space – not specifically designed for human in habitation – and attempt to mentally traverse and place yourself within it. Where would you go/stay/ascend/descend? What are areas of rest and which are areas of circulation?
