This is a cooperative project between Emily Carr University of Art + Design and Ellingsen Woods.
And the requirement of this project is ritual.
This project aims to increase the appreciation and recognition for the value of western hemlock from Cortes island. To maximize the potential of logged wood from Cortes island, we will use design to help create sentimental connections between users and their space.
Our design aims to showcase the diversity of diffusing natural light through transformative shadows and positionality of the sun, integrated into the user's space to disrupt the urban setting with eye-catching biomimicry for that aspect of taking a walk in nature, instinctively causing momentary pausing to observe. This slowed perception of time, although it may be brief, it could help to bring one's spatial awareness positively with objective beauty.
