I’ve been thinking about how to begin planning this concept and I was attempting to read up about what makes a space, an engaging experience? So there was a few readings in the folder tht Prof. Louis shared and I managed to read up on the chapter Setting the Stage in the book, “Goods and services are no longer enough”. It talks about the four types of experience: Educational, Entertainment, Escapism and Esthetic.
This is a table of how the four realms of experience happen. I find it interesting that this reading was from a business service oriented book and that it can be applied to installations as well.
The concluding statements:
In theory, this seems easy and simple, but to apply it physically is tough.
So I was thinking of lying down on beds, spread out in a fan-shaped, with the installation illuminated by a lamp, or a night light. Individually, each bed has a unique recording played through a small speaker; recordings of people talking – dreams, aspirations, past, hopes. And people can go around to each different beds experiencing different recordings.
Of course, I have in mind a cozy, warmly lit intimate bedroom setting.
My concern is that, maybe it does not engage enough with the idea of space. I understand the four realms of experience, but am I applying the notion and concepts of space?
