Are you in or are you out?
The way people claim and use spaces is intriguing. By creating a border, space is defined and given a name and purpose. Both in the private and the public realm these borders define our spatial experience. Are in you or are you out? crosses boundaries by being a physical transition between one place and another. It’s a Tent trailer for the great outdoors, but with a twist. It addresses a strange paradox:
Why do many go out to the countryside and bring a fenced off miniature version of their home comforts? Why do people need the safety of home when going outdoors? Doors, walls or fences are used to define the border between inside and outside, city versus countryside, public versus private, yours versus mine. They imply a culture and feeling of belonging that often accompanies these (invisible) lines. Are you in or are you out? is an effort to make people more conscious of the space they choose to be in and how they interact with it.
