Re-Connecting with Providence

August Lehrecke

A simple piece of string acts as a rigid form to constrict the space, creating four distinct chambers. The size of the window dictates the red tarp; as the light begins to flood into the red chamber, it slowly begins to disperse into the other three. Due to the double-curved form of the structure, one can only see a section of the final red chamber without even entering the space, leaving viewers curious about what lies beyond the window. Once you enter the last chamber a single window pane, that is framed by the tarp, is your only connection to the exterior.
