The fixture is inspired by the dilatation or expansion of a pupil, as a result of a wide range of psychological processes. The idea has its origins in the moments that our perception seems to expand to a new level. At those moments life is a suspended atmosphere where we are able to experience and focus on the immensity of small happenings such as raindrops rolling down the glass of a window, the smoke of a recently made coffee or the laugh of someone we love.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Some human sensations when expanded can carry a feeling of travel between dimensions. It can even be said that there is something cosmic about those experiences. As our vision is our principal sense to perceive the world, our eyes can be interpreted as dimension-travel machines, whose pupil expansion was the inspiration for this design. The name - TARDIS - is a reference to the dimension-time-travel machine presented on the Doctor Who series.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The successive rectangles and its overlaid transparency imply the existence of multiple time and space perceptions. From a micro to a macro angle, or vice versa.
