EDGES>intersection/transition, circulation

My project is about acknowledging edges and invading them. Shifting the perception of an edge so that the actual thing becomes permeable and inhabitable. On my site, there are edges between grains/fabrics/textures and my thesis is about breaking down and diluting the edge. When the textures collide, they fuse and transition into one another.

This is done through projecting the edge from above, inserting paths within them in order to expand the edge and move within it.

Similar to the flow of the highway above, there are gradients of speeds within the site. The curves are paths are determined by the radii of flow. For example, the shape of a turn intended for the individual is dramatically different from one intended for a crowd.
