suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
sarah SCHNEIDER: the focus of this project is to create optical effects and views. in this space station these effects can generate a confusing perception of the different horizons. since there is a shift between the gravitational (artificial gravitation through centrifugal force) and the human (view) horizon, views can create a kind of augmented reality where the observer’s reality collides with the reality of the scene he watches.
views that cut horizontally through the structure from a point that does not equal the center generate a sequential image of different horizons since the horizon within one view gradually changes. the different ornamented layers are creating an effect of layered depth which gives the observer anartificial environment within perceivable distance. at the same time these layers are framing the view into the unfathomable vastness of outer space.
