CUSHION: An Interactive Media Womb - October 2016 - Nuit Blanche

The contemporary city is a space of sensory overload. On this night in particular, crowds emerge to roam amongst a cacophony of stimulation: from imagery and noise, to movement and smell. This project seeks to provide a cushioned media-womb where visitors can reflect in isolation and comfort. CUSHION was installed in the alley next to the Bata Shoe Museum for Nuit Blanche 2016.

F_RMlab is a design collective from the University of Waterloo exploring digital fabrication and interactive technology through installations. I assisted in this installation mainly throughout the assembly/take down, site documentation, and in its promotion through social media channels and distribution of flyers.
