205_Paulina Hurtado: Narrows Pavilion

Submission #205 | Paulina Hurtado: Narrows Pavilion — "Narrows pavilion is a social platform that works as a living organism introducing the subject into a portal that addresses space as the expression of scenery.  The pavilion explores the idea of implied functionality.

For instance, it is a space for exhibitions, but it is not a museum; it is a space with scenographic features for performances, but it is not a theater; it is a space for dinning and social encounter, but it is not a cafe nor a restaurant."

148_Drew Heller: Power Wall

Submission #148 | Drew Heller: Power Wall — "Artwork is no longer to be consumed within a ‘monumental’ time frame, open for a universal public; rather, it elapses with factual time, for an audience ‘summoned’ by the artist” - Nicolas Bourriaud, Relational Aesthetics.
