With equal nods to Minimalism's aesthetics and consumerism's supermarket maximalism, the project places a fully functioning automatic sliding door in the middle of a public park, offering the everyday as a folly for play, re-experience and reflection on neutered thresholds.

Material: Pre-fabricated Automatic Sliding Door

Dimensions: 14' x 8' x 4"
