"Entry," an exhibition by Kamran Samimi
January 14, 2015 - February 6, 2015
Mānoa Campus, The Commons Gallery, Art Building
Inspired by the Thurston Lava Tube on the Big Island of Hawai'i, graduate art student Kamran Samimi creates an architectural space that can be physically entered and experienced by the viewer.
Our brain perceives boundaries through our senses, informing the ways in which we relate to our environment. "Entry" explores this interaction as it entices the audience to penetrate and experience the space with their body, rather than simply their eyes.
I am interested in enveloping the participant in a moment of transcendence and mindfulnessâ€”to be here, now. The geometric form is an abstraction of the entry to the Thurston Lava Tube on the Big Island, an immersive architectural space produced by the creative power of nature itself.
