TRAPPA, 2012, Art Institute of Boston, Lesley University, Boston, MA
This installation addresses the geometry of the stair to reveal the deep cultural meanings conveyed by the architecture inherent in a staircase. Besides being an integral part of human civilization since its emergence, the staircase carries deep symbolic and psychological meanings, which are masked under its sober and standardized design. The form and motif highlight the diagonal movement of the staircase and its ability to function as a connector. The color palette is dynamic, indicating rhythm and body movement, but also referencing the high-intensity colors used in warning signs and exit lighting.
