Walking and Falling Mobile Gallery Space
The brief called for a small, portable gallery that could be assembled in different locations and accomodate a range of styles of artwork. The gallery is a simple modular form based on the combining of a spiral and a series of conic sections.
The name of the gallery refers to Laurie Anderson’s 1982 song of the same name, and to a model of motion as a cyclical process of instability and recovery. The gallery is oriented with the apertures facing North, allowing diffuse natural lighting and blocking direct light. The daylight is augmented when necessary by fluorescent strips set into the inside edge of each panel behind a diffusing lens.
