Revolving Gaze

Bianca Yousef


In response to the contemporary public interior, Revolving Gaze explores spatial techniques that emphasise the user’s physical interaction with the interior. Ways of exaggerating sensory qualities of the interior and body are explored to encourage collaboration between people to move through the interior together. To further heighten this interaction the study of social behaviour between strangers provides a set of unspoken rules to be broken.

The final installation takes form as a static representation of mapped movement of two people passing through a revolving door. Rotating on a central pivot, the glass door separates the strangers. The only connection between the two takes form in the unintentional moments of eye contact. Re-imagined as a new transitional device, my interactive installation creates a more intimate choreography as two people are gradually brought together.
