Installation: An exploration re-imagining our everyday coexistence with electrical fixtures as architecture.

Craig Ross


Fully accessible / Children welcome

Assisted Space [we're the operators] is an enquiry into electric fixtures coexistence as architecture and multi-purposeful machinery. The installation translates ubiquitous socket outlets, switches panels and 3-way socket adaptors into building and design material. Here build site is formed as e-architecture in development as collaborative with e-objects.

Through working with the materials the following elementary and deductive thoughts of the artist gave impetus and insight for further development, they are the following;

If every powered object had to have its own singular socket outlet, what form of architecture might be manifesting?

Suppose that what constituted machine as robot had been historically defined by human action instead of remote control?

The project by re-imagining what already exists offers pointers toward psychological experience through, altering and renaming, unveiling and revealing,failing and retesting,deducting and rebuilding.

Assisted space is a playful recall saying: ‘we're the operator, socket manipulator’, create space create culture.
