Species of Spaces

An experimental project in which I interpreted excerpts of George Perec’s ‘Species of Spaces’ as an animation to be projected live onto a physical model (an abstracted apartment block). 

I tell the story of Perec as he is writing his book, pondering the spaces he inhabits, from his page to his bed, and his apartment block to the Parisian streets.

I chose to play with projection mapping for this adaptation because of how it combines a physical space (the model) with an illusion of space (the projection). I think this mirrors Perec’s often playful and unexpected contemplations about what space is.
