The goal of the project was to develop new systems for animating thresholds between public and private space. This solution relies on a complex network of cords to raise and lower a series of inflated balls. If used correctly, the threshold can be left completely open, become entirely obstructed, or allow some, but not all, things through. By encouraging user interaction, the device is more than simply a door, window, or wall: it becomes a multi-purpose space whose use can be altered to fit one’s desires or needs.
