I have already made this post about Patternpeople, focuses on them e-book to which i have contributed as designer.
Today, i want to signal you this them beautiful initiative.
On October 1st, Pattern People participated in Content at the Ace Hotel in Portland, where designers were each given a room to make their own for a day. Pattern People's idea was to cover the room in patterns; wallpaper, bedding, pillows, etc.
But, instead of working at full-scale, they re-created the room in miniature complete with tiny furniture, plants, working lights and of course, surface designs wherever they could go. To finish it off, the diorama featured a peep-hole view through a fish eye lens which added to the miniature magic. It was then placed behind curtains which hid the actual room interior from sight.
Peering into the looking glass, viewers expectations and perceptions were challenged. Many assumed they were looking into the actual room, some were confused by what they saw, while others were delighted.
A very interesting and stimulating play of visual perception! Compliments!
Below, two images of their realization and other patterns, that can be found on their beautiful site and blog www.patternpeople.com
