Portfolio > Refocus room divider

materials: 1000+ film canisters, elastic

dimensions: 4' x 5' when fully rolled out, 1' diameter x 4' tall when rolled up

description: Refocus is a room divider constructed entirely out of old film canisters. Over 1,000 canisters were intercepted for this project. The room divider narrows the focus in a room much like how a camera can selectively choose what to focus on. The canisters are strung together with elastic giving it flexibility to be rolled up when not in use and when shipped. The rolling action resembles how a roll of film winds up.

design note: We made friends with all the film processing stores in new york to collect enough containers for this project. It took about 3 months to collect enough containers.
