AEDS – DesCours 2008 – SW1

This installation, presented for the 2008 DesCours event in New Orleans, is described in the designers words as below:

The SW1 is a site specific installation created for a currently unused corridor site between two historical buildings in downtown New Orleans that was originally built and used as a public walkway.  The installation for DesCours plays off of this historical reference and projects the idea of conceptually connecting spaces, both real and imaginary, through newly created shafts made to invite the visitors to imagine what this walkway could have been or perhaps what it was originally meant to be.  The installation also creates a new environment made out of light that triggers the pedestrians and passers-by to recognize this space and to imagine it with a new potential.
