An Image is a Room is an Image
HAYLIE CHAN (M.ARCH I, ’19)
This video explores how a museum could exist in a virtual setting, taking cues from architectural imagery and our daily interactions with two-dimensional interfaces. A unique web experience is resituated inside the gallery, where transitions from room to room emulate the motions that one would perform with a swipe, scroll, or zoom into an image, revealing an implied space beyond the two-dimensional surface. However, as we scroll through the feeds of Instagram and design blogs, the seamless transition from image to image can only further a lack of scale and sense of place. This project then poses the question: How are we able to locate ourselves within the digital realm?
