ROTATING DOOR is an installation project of the Mis-Design curated program collections, which is a part of the Victoria State Design Festival in Melbourne. The brief asked for the creation of a thinking pavilion from flatland objects to be positioned in an empty space between retail areas. With reference to a previous project by a client, Tim Fleming, this project has not only propelled the concept of ‘capturing’ onto a whole new level of imagination, but has also served to question the possibility for an individual to simultaneously experience the past and present. Here, the storyline revolves around the excitement of a childish adventure towards objects and the conscious self-awareness of this pleasant thrill that sends a person back into their youthful past. Both the mirror and the rotating door to which it is attached are playful media employed co-operatively and effectively to bring about fragmented childhood memories of the past and a joyous reflection of the present, with the reflection of individuals in the mirror representing an object in between this transitional space.
