The View From , 2020
Inspired by the archive images of the play and activities on board, I have created a visually kinetic piece that captures the lively moments on cruise, giving a dose of whimsy for passengers on board.
The porthole window is a significant symbol of maritime culture. It is also a fascinating art deco interior design detail, which can be found everywhere on the Cunard cruiseship.
From the cross section map of the cruise, you can imagine how the atmosphere changes vertically from different decks.
Taking inspiration from these, imagine what kind of activities will be on each deck. Different movements are abstracted for each section, representing the activities on each level.
The movement is within each section that represents activities on different decks, and is created by the lenticular print structure, which creates an illusion of movement when the passengers walk past the work.
This work is commissioned by Cunard cruise liner and curated by double decker UK.
It was set to be published in June 2020 and was postponed due to the COVID 19, the final photos will be updated asap.
