1:3 scale model of the director's office

A one third scale model of the director's office was suspended from the wall separating the existing office from the main exhibition space. An opening, sized to the dimensions of the model, was cut out of the wall and covered with glass. This established a visual exchange between the two spaces. Large enough for one person to stand in, from inside the model, the interior of the original office with the director at work was revealed. From the director's office one could look inside the model with it's potential occupant. A visual and psychological encounter between gallery visitors and the director was generated.
