This is a conceptual piece that I developed for one of my classes. The assignment was to build a location that had to deal with space. My work was inspired by "The House of Leaves" by Mark Z. Danielewski. Within the book, the narrator explores echoes’ connotations in the mythology and its relation to space and self. Psychologically, something about the vast unknown is terrifying and unsettling and I think that Danielewski touches upon something that is innately human: it is the vastness of space that makes us, humans, feel claustrophobic, for when there is that much space, there is no echo, and thus description of space or love – only silence. To give a little context, the internal structure would be painted with vantablack to enhance the experience of silence (vantablack is a substance that can take a 3D object and render it visually 2D by absorbing close to 99% of light).
