Some New Items for the Home, Part II

1989

A few years after Some New Items for the Home Part I, I decided to make a second room, this time enlarged and with the wooden walls removed. The wooden walls had somehow contributed too much atmosphere to the first room and replacing them with diagrammatic markings on the floor allowed the objects to contribute more of the atmosphere.

By expanding the room I was able to include more items. It worked out OK, maybe less impressive than the first, but more useful in allowing the objects to make the atmosphere. Since the first drawings I had made of rooms, I kept in mind an imaginary room which seemed to help in editing ideas and developing them into finished objects. These room sets were physical snapshots of that imaginary atmosphere.
