In form of a pop-up lab we experimented with traditional Asian crafts like calligraphy, handmade paper and rice glue. Paper also had architectural applications as it preceded glass in doors and windows. Translucency, light and shadow are at the heart of to both spatially using paper and shadow play. The fixed frame becomes the stage for an animated story. This inspired us to build a series of kinetic prototypes. We dynamically arranged light, object and screen to create blurring and shifting effects.
