CHANGING ROOM is a full scale, immersive environment, architectural installation on view at the Extension Gallery in Chicago in 2011
EASTON+COMBS is installing the CHANGING ROOM, a full scale immersive architectural installation that will open on Friday April 8th 2011 at 6pm at the Extension Gallery in Chicago.
CHANGING ROOM is a full scale experimental architectural environment. The installation is an immersive environment that explores the boundaries of intimacy in public space through materials and form.
CHANGING ROOM performs as a subtle spectacle of the expectations and boundaries of intimate experience in the public realm. A lightweight structural skin suspends from above and dilates along the bottom edge creating oblique visual corridors to the interior as well as passages for the body to move through. The interior creates a temporary zone of sensuality that plays against the public realm - like a closet of two way mirrors, the limit and perception of the interior belies the condition of transparency and spectacle from the exterior.

CHANGING ROOM limited edition prints. This series is a photographic essay of performance based interactions within the CHANGING ROOM. This series will be a collaboration between the designers, professional photographers and a performance artist(s) that will interpret and explore the CHANGING ROOM as a boundary condition between of the intimate in public realm. Each donation of 10 to 50 dollars will receive a limited edition 5x7 size print set of three images from this series. Donations of 50 to 150 dollars will receive a limited edition set of three 8x10 images, and donations over 100 dollars will receive a unique limited edition (50 maximum) 20x30 print.
The goal is to raise $5,000 dollars to pay for the installation costs and the cost of photography. A substantial amount of the money received will contribute to the production costs of the high quality prints to be distributed to the patrons of the CHANGING ROOM.
