Chrome Cavern and the Expanded Consciousness Reading Room
In this architectural-poetical collaboration between DBA Lab (the research and exploration studio of David Baker Architects) and curator Jacob Palmer, StoreFrontLab will become a conduit for self-reflection and exploration. Come participate in an immersive installation encompassing moments of insight, voyeurism, and play.
The interactive sculptural environment will host a series of readings, receptions, events, and discussions on diverse topics—from artificial intelligence to consciousness, dark matter to the infinite—facilitating experiences that parallel these ideas with the hope that participants will discover new connections and real-world applications.
This installation responds to and builds on the structural form of a large-scale site-specific piece called peepSHOW
, which was originally created by DBA Lab for the Market Street Prototyping Festival. Designed to filter the senses and engage the public on a gritty San Francisco street corner, peepSHOW is recontextualized here as the Chrome Cavern, a compounding of interior spaces that filter and focus a personal exploration of the luminous corners of the mind.
