Transformative Space

Fall 2017: Graphic Design Senior Thesis

Transformative spaces can be created through simple physical gestures, light,
and imagery and can be designed to evoke moments of mindfulness in its participants.


This project is an experiment in how space and imagery can impact a person’s
experience within a space. The project is meant to evoke a very childlike and playful
state of mind in participants as it is constructed of sheets, blankets, and pillows,
reminding participants of their childhood blanket forts. This, combined with projected
imagery of water, creates a light-hearted and peaceful space that allows the participant
to temporarily escape the rest of reality.
