Hurry up to Relax is an experimentation towards bringing together two seemingly incompatible things: speed and reflection. Often when we think of a place to bring about reflection we think of quiet places of solitude. What is often overlooked as a solution towards processing stress and bringing a sense of peace is kinesthetic movement and the manipulation of light. Just as people go running or take a long drive to process the day, we can use light, speed, and connection as elements for processing our everyday lives. I designed a meditative space that elicits self reflection while students are walking from class to class.
Between the 90 and the 405 is an experimental narrative towards the disconnect from those who live in the city, and the homeless.
