The following two models named Micro City will show how the perception of everyday object changes, together with the methods of construction and different scales in order to occupy the space, and the impact of space’s status.
These two models are composed with everyday objects, which directly occupy the installation room and the gap under the table respectively with the extension of objects and constructions. The two models are developed as well as an imagining micro city, which has very huge objects and structures to organise the whole model as ground, including medium and tiny different type of objects of buildings or transports. The two models have completely impacted and changed the original status of space.
Every small fragmented object composes a one huge object based on the characteristics of city. The meanings of these tiny objects have been changed. The city occupies and continues to extend in the installation room where it has become a part of the city base. Because of these objects occupy the space where people tend to ignore, the objects change and redefine the characteristic of the space. They also create the new relation between objects and the place
Due to the concept of imagining micro city is under the development, the model should not be seen as one big object. The way how the model should be seen is the same way of how people view the city as a series of fragments. This is why the micro camera is used instead of people’s eyes when recording the visual fragments in this micro city. Through the same micro camera, the images will be projected on the wall in the studio. Nevertheless, there are two things would change due to the projection: one is the scale of the model in vision and another one is the image of the objects which is being projected on the wall in the studio. It is important to notice that the model is enlarged for matching the similar scale of the real environment that people are familiar with.
The new images are projected to cover the object on the wall with a powerful perspective, which seems to break the wall out of extend the depth of the wall. Some objects become difficult to be recognized while they also divide the images from the projector into several parts. Both images of projection and a part of wall are getting blurry and are difficult to be distinguished. Using the white line to redraw both outlines can make their shapes much clearer but much difficult to distinguish them between image and studio in vision. The projection seems to be a potential method to generate the outline when dividing and breaking the rationality of the space. The overlapped image could break the original status of the space in vision.
