Video: Henry Art Gallery Facade Proposal by PIQUE

PIQUE, a collaborative of design professionals shared with us a video of their proposal por the Henry Art Gallery facade. The goal of this project is to transform the Henry Art Gallery storefront from a busy corridor into an energetic, engaging extension of the Gallery that makes people aware of the act of observing, reacting and interacting.

Through changing perspectives, the Parallax Wall is a marker of movement, a magnifying glass looking on intimate reflection, and a mirror reflecting an active community. It is a tool to capture one’s divided attention and illustrate for them the contribution their presence has in making place. Just as a see-saw lies useless in a park unless TWO people engage it, the Parallax Wall connects people to people and thereby connects moment and event to memory.
