Hi, I'm Rith!

A study of East Boston waterfront unveils its characteristics
through the intervention. The project explores the edge condition on how land and water
meet, tidal changes, and materiality. Form is generated by a way-finding through a variety
of steps along the site. In response, the artificial and natural behavior of the surrounding
creates the arrangement of each spatial element. Movement is carefully choreographed through
specific placement of objects; however, tidal changes unstitch this rhythmic way of moving,
and the dialogue between the existing conditions and the installation becomes performative.
This interaction appears when the ephemeral qualities of the place enable or disable the
experience of the static object. Time is evidence of these changes as one witnesses the
weathering of the space initiated by the situation of the place. This experience would vary
depending upon the time of day.
