Today I was thinking about how this room should look like:
If it is a semicircle, one projector should be enough to cover it. Also the triangle. But I still think a cuboid could make the audience feel more tridimensional. The highlight of this idea is through projection and video to provide audiences a kind of illusion. It seems they come into a transparent space. Without barriers.
But the difficult thing is that because of it is in a room, so the projectors will be hard to control and cover the whole room, so temporary I won’t make a big one, I will start from a small space.
Then I also came up with another idea:
this idea is about a space that looks like nothing inside except lots of pattern, but when the audiences get closer they will find there are some furniture hide in the pattern of this room. Then when they sit on the chair in this room, they look like sit on nothing. But I feel that this idea does not use any digital technique, so I just leave it.
I wrote down the key words of the material or technique I want to use in my project, they are: glass, mirror, projection, pepper ghost, illusion.
Suddenly, I an idea raise in my head, draw a contradictory space, project some audiences onto the space, when they are walking they will find that they could walk in both space.
I felt that no matter how much idea I thought, I still could not find something new. The contents are always similar. I listed what is the different when I remove different kinds of “barriers” or “carriers”.
After that, I keep thinking my last idea. I was wondering is there a way that can makes the audience have same feeling but reduce the size of this space, so I came up with this idea:
why not just make a cube and the audience can stand below the cube, look through the cube.
Then I started think about how to arrange those images:
And I searched many materials that I am going to project tomorrow. It was not easy to find those images I want, but just for test is okay.. and tomorrow I will start to project those images.

After yesterday’s research I found that I still have to work on Plan B which is the transparent furniture, so today I continue thinking what other test should I do, but I can not think any. The more important is Shiyuan, Silvia and Yutong think my this idea does not express my subject very well, in opposite it makes they feel that I want to express that there are some other tiny human beings live with us but we can not see them or did not notice them… So I want to give up this idea and keep thinking other ideas, see if I could come up any other better.
I went to library and read some book to find inspiration:
at night, I came up with some ideas:
the last one is a long and narrow transparent room, I hope when the audience go into the room they feel that this room appears transparent, they can see what their neighbour are doing, downstairs, upstairs, even more deeper, a group of people are on a tube and passing by. Tomorrow I will do some test, I think at first I should built a model to work out how it goes and then built a real size room.
