Invasion of space -process

This is the update of my final project. My Initial idea is to  built an interactive installation by boxes. People could stand in front or behind the boxes. By moving the boxes, the motor inside each box will be triggered, hence the sound will be generated.

We have been dealing with personal space ever since we were born. Even unborn twins fighting for space in womb.

It is to simulate how we deal with people the when in the public space, for instance, in the crowded train.  People need some personal space but sometimes you have to compromise it because you don’t own the public space. This installation portrays sometimes how we find our own comfort zone in the public space. The sound is the emotion when we get frustrated and annoyed to move to another space reluctantly.

Meanwhile, the installation is still working in progress, here are the 3D illustrations for a better understanding. There are 9 rectangular boxes in total stacking up. There is a frame to secure the boxes.

The boxes


There are 2 buttons installed at the 2 sides of each box. When pressing in, sound will be produced.


Here’s a short video showing the arrangement of the wires, buttons and motors inside the box.
