Inspired from the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Liminal Door metaphorically symbolizes a transition into a liminal space. This sparks the users curiosity by being the first thing they see. While also not being where they expect it, physically outside the installation in the lobby.

This door is an example of how I blur the lines of functionality and expression. Although this door has a very functional design, it is not being used the way it is supposed to.  I’m using a functional tool to express the idea of change.  You don’t walk through this door. But once you go past it, you enter a liminal space.
