Choreographic dwelling is an imaginative scenario about living in our body-based adaptive domestic environment. Imagine the moment when our body movement generates personal dwelling through several choreographic steps. This environment is smoothly fit to our skin, connected to the joints of our body and controlled as our body moves while doing daily routine. Through the field of choreography, this project seeks to expand the range of existing methods of design by investigating the daily body gesture as a basis for designing domestic interior.
Choreographic Dwelling is designed through spatial installation: by representing the performance of imaginative scenario living in choreographic dwelling.
The elastic string installation introduces the real experience of choreographic dwelling by let the performer as inhabitant shows the possibility of body movement in composing the lines to support the body posture. By initiating several choreographic steps, user will move through the lines and wrap part of her body to be stable in several positions in daily routine (sitting-leaning-reclining-sleeping)
One surface filled by elastic strings, supported by the three-dimensional structure, illustrates the body-based and adaptable house for one person; considering the dimension of the body, which possible to expand, pull, push, depending on body needs. The color-line notation etched within the strings aims to let the dweller place their part of the body (shoulders, hands, legs, right-left) to engage with the elastic thread domestic installation.
This spatial installation provides for understanding the body- space tensile relationship and offers a practical application of designing minimum- adaptive living space through the lenses of choreography. More than being realistic and practically applicable, Choreographic Dwelling is as well meant to give an understanding about how body-space relationship interacts and how we extend it with fluid dimensions
