The Other Room is a research project investigating speculative design in a series of suggestions for impossible interiors. For the group exhibition Loophole at Roodkapje Rotterdam, a detached movable wall (240*40*240cm) stands in the middle of the room. The mobile wall is decorated with an air vent suggestive of a building infrastructure and ducting system. A secondary vent is placed on a fixed structural wall in the gallery. Visitors could hear sounds coming through the vent. Voices of visitors chatting, familiar voices even alongside distant audio coming from the other projects. The two vents are connected in an invisible ducting system creating a one-way flow of communication, an unattainable inside, or an eavesdropping opportunity.
