Speculative Design

 

Cinemaze is unique performance venue designed to host a series of short films that explore the idea of non-liner narratives in which the viewer has the ability to define their own viewing experience. Audience members are asked to navigate a fabric maze, as they do so their journey is interrupted by a series of scenes from a short film. Depending on the route you choose to take you will experience a completely different sequence of scenes and thus will emerge from the maze with a story line defined by your movement through the space. The architecture of the venue mimics the complex story-lines of the films showing within it. Branching, divergent story-lines lead to a complex maze like form, the route through which is guided by the film’s narrative.
