NEST is driven by the idea of creating a space of comfort and introspection within a system of complexity and disarray. The overwhelming nature of information and everyday life is expressed through the chaotic texture and asymmetrical form of the installation. Composed of modular cells that contain a weave of colourful webs, NEST provides both shelter and playful moments of light and shadow within the space. The interior experience allows the visitor to momentarily step away from the noise, pause, and view the world through a clear lens.
Initial concept sketches exploring form, material, detail and joint connections.
