part/WHOLE Pop-Up Shop by Metropolitan Society

part/WHOLE, a Boston based clothing brand, had a temporary pop-up retail space housed at Distillery Gallery Boston, MA . The clothing collection was titled, ‘Abstract Realism’. We used plastic sheeting for its translucent quality and texture within the installation.

The concept was based around a ‘call to action’ where the customer would have to open the plastic curtain to see the clothing, but when the curtain is closed one can see just the shadow or silhouette of the clothing behind the plastic curtain. We created clothing racks out of plumbing pipes and then realized the whole system could take on the appearance as an extrusion of wall itself as if the walls were coming at the viewer. With this in mind we cut out sheets of plastic that would attach to the actual drywall and to the pipe/rack system was well.

Sur-veil-ance by Metropolitan Society

Location: Boston Architectural College

Sur-veil-lance was a 24hr installation at Boston Architectural College for the annual ‘parti’ celebration. By employing framed plastic sheeting, the screens seemingly poking out from the wall and confront the viewer with a  live feed image of the people looking at the next screen,. If one is viewing the first screen they would see what is happening in front of the next screen and the same for those viewing the second screen and then those viewing the third screen would see a feed of what was happening behind the installation. The concept was intended to hint at ideas of surveillance and security in our contemporary landscape, as well as a reactive facade or interface that breaks the third wall of architecture and user.
