2021 SWELL ARTWORK – Inmost Pavilion, Jessica Harris

The COVID-19 pandemic has offered the opportunity to reflect critically on how we occupy and inhabit space. Inmost plays with an intimate scale relative to a singular user and encourages people to reflect upon their isolation experience. The envelope of the pavilion is not a definitive barrier, rather the layers of translucent fabric screens allow for interaction with the external environment.

When inside, the viewer is encapsulated and the subtle movement of the fabric also symbolises a common element of the residential environment that hosted the self-isolation experience, the curtain.
