THE UNNOTICED

 

Group project created with students from Parsons School of Design during the intensive critical workshops in the Palace of Culture in Warsaw. 

The palace of culture is a grey monolyth dominating ­Warsaw. Or so we have been told.This project subverts the received, cliche meanings of the palace as uniform and ­monotone, They are reinforced by the incessant ­reproductions of its ­facades. As we explored the palace, we have found it to be full of ­surprising, fanciful, ­sometimes outright weird ornaments.

Using the optical principles Fotoplastykon, we ­propose a ­binocular device that brings the inside of the ­palace out, ­allowing people to encounter the palace in a ­different ways.
