This week our project was based on understanding and creating an atmosphere through space. We tried to understand how different spaces might ignite different emotions, and how this can be a crucial tool in creating a an effective performance. We also focused on how we can construct and deconstruct a space.
We began the project with a spatial study. In pairs or groups we were given a descriptive word, my group was given "MANIC", and we were asked to find a space which had this atmosphere and make several quick sketches. We focussed on establishing atmosphere and composition. And what space could be more MANIC than Kings Cross Station - hundreds of commuters rushing to and fro, each person on an individual mission.
