Social Space is a video response to the measurement of time produced by Collaborative Design students Mackenzie Tucker and Elizabeth Bush.
During the Spring Semester of Visual Literacy, students were posed with the challenge of mapping time in a three or four dimensional way. In Social Space, time is mapped with videography. The voiceover is an excerpt from the chapter Social Space in Henri Lefebvre’s The Production of Space. The excerpt describes the process of life. All creatures start by blooming, but eventually, everything dies. The video mimics the words with ballet dance by showing the process of warming up, performing, and ending a dance.
The two students took a leap and filmed, edited, and produced the short video on their own with no prior experience. The collaborative experience gave both students growth in areas on the basis of an abstract idea.
