Emergency Exit is a part of my ongoing research on interface, illusion, and interpretation. The installation consists of an actual functional emergency exit and two projections. The projections go back and forth between virtual emergency exits with imaginary signs and fictional spaces behind those exits in the 3D world.
The installation is presented as an interface. A proposition that merges virtual spaces with the real space by presenting a pair of virtual emergency exits alongside an actual one in the physical world.
A meditation on crisis, exits, choices, sanity, and humour.
The actual space behind an emergency exit is rarely seen. If you stare at an emergency exit long enough, you start imagining the possible space behind it. Supposedly, the spaces are only being used and experienced when there is an emergency. These life saving doors are always just there waiting to be run across when it matters.
