The Meditation Room project emerged from the exploration of the ideas of horizon and peripheral vision.
Meditation Room: Horizon was installed in Sara D. Roosevelt Park on the Lower East Side of New York City, for one day -- Saturday, May 30, 2015. Presented by The Drawing Center during the New Museum’s Ideas City Festival, the installation created the sense of an expansive horizon in the smallest of spaces.
Balmori Associates’ “Meditation Room: Horizon” is a constructed continuous wall of paper where the overlapping of two dot matrix systems comes together to create a visible horizon. A city is distinguished by the presence of multiple horizon lines stacked one over another. A task of landscape in the city then may be to create the sense of an expansive horizon in the smallest of spaces. You are invited to meditate on this concept of the horizon and to draw your interpretation.
