Ascending/Descending, 2013

In Ascending/Descending, a sandblasted acrylic sheet covers a standard-sized doorway to act as a projection screen for a responsive video. A rear projector displays on the doorway the life-size image of an elevator door. In front of the screen lies a custom-built pressure sensor designed to detect when a user stands in front of the screen. The elevator door in the projected image responds to a viewer’s presence by opening when the sensor is triggered.
