Recently, we’ve been interested in the architectural implications of night: what occurs, flickers, transpires, is built or destroyed, in the hours of darkness? Who do you break the law with? What wakes at twilight? Can night be an allegory for entering into the subconscious and uncanny territories of the built environment and lived experience?

“The Uncomfortableness of Getting into Bed With Others” was an architectural installation accompanying a symposium on March 11 at SAIC. The project is a piece of large furniture which temporarily replaces the traditional seating in the Neiman Center. Using “seating” as a method of questioning “participation” as a methodology in art and architecture (the symposium’s topic), the installation takes the form of a large bed which participants must negotiate while attending the day’s events. Low to the ground, the project is intended to challenge one’s sense of personal space, ergonomics, and the implications of sharing space with others.
