Design as One

Courtyard, G/F, PMQ

The Swinging Void is a room that invites visitors to breathe and experience the useful/uselessness of space-time. Using the basic elements with which we are born—time, space, light and our bodies—the piece takes simple geometric forms to carve out solitary, intimate, private experiences with a sense of duality. It is composed of the useful/useless moments we experienced as children: the joy of a playground swing, the awe of glazing at the blue sky, the cosy security of hiding under a blanket…

From the outside, the cube appears to be a confined space; yet once entered, its spherical void is large enough for time to fill and light to play. In between the reality and imagination of the facades, is the duality that lies in our mundane everyday lives.
