I Want You To: A Thesis Book-Show

At the beginning of winter quarter, Karen Lange’s thesis studio (myself included) presented our fall thesis books in our annual book show, which we affectionately called, “(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To.”  We displayed our books as shown in the above image, lying between white, upright books on bookshelves within a small, white box - which we pre-fabricated and assembled within a larger room in the Architecture building.  

Using projectors, fog machines, and fabric, we blacked out the rest of the room, filled it up with fog, and shot colorful lasers across the room at a consistent height.  The white box sat in the corner of the larger room, hardly visible when first entering, and standing in stark contrast to the colorful laser beams.  Visitors were invited to sit around the exterior of the white box and read our books using flashlights we provided to them.
