This bookshelf is for the room set aside from computers, laser cutters and CNC routers within Autodesk’s Artist In Residence program. I was asked to create something to showcase objects of inspiration, in a room for relaxation and contemplation. Instead of making the piece smaller so that the room’s light switch remained outside of the shelving, this piece creates the space for interaction and invitation, an opening where a person will put their hand between the assemblage of pillars each time they enter or leave the room. The goal was to create a relationship between the resident makers and the structures which support objects of contemplation. It is about creating a space for history while embracing the act of shedding light, and, conserving energy.
