A swing in a lift. Installation for people to inhabit, even when the light goes off.
Intervening in the space challenging its identity and functionality. I installed a swing in the lift, thinking about the elderly and the families that were living in the building. A feeble sound of crickets was installed inside the light, barely perceptible only when the lift was still. I investigated how the displacement of that object and sound transformed the perception of space and the time that people spent in it.
