Adam Simspon _ Boundaries

A floor-to-ceiling artwork, appearing on all sides of an elevator vestibule at the ‘Boundary Hotel’, situated on Boundary Street in East London.

The artwork was devised around a grid of boundary walls. Each segment is approximately 170mm square. The aim was to take an alternative approach to dealing with the seemingly dead space of an elevator interior, by immersing the visitor in an epic artwork, which is impossible to absorb in one short trip. Each journey offers a chance to study a new scene: a geometric toile de jouy, of sorts.

I am currently pursuing a Masters degree in Architecture at the University of Toronto. For the next few months I will be focusing on defining research parameters for my final year thesis, that is based around Bazaars and Souks.
