Otherness | Misc. Projects of the Week


Otherness projects pick for this week show different ways of creating a sense of place (habitable, visual or experiential) in spatial thresholds as context or locations: how it comes to life when projected on a surface; how it is inhabited and informed in digital space; how it operates for habitation - afloat in the sky, stranded in south pole or just building lunar habits.
