Exploration of density and textures using the f r a g m e n t a t i o n then bursting of a closed space, creating a possibility of having new spaces between each threshold, each one getting bigger and bigger.
The fragmentation is produced by the verticals of the proto-strucutre, and the bursting by the exponential spacing between those.The protostructure, besides its structural role, is literraly a "space cutting" machine.
The increasing depth generated by these actions (which we could easily imagine becoming infinite if we enlarged the protostructure even more), reinforced by the non-linear geometry and the texture of the plaster, creates a new fiel of exploration for the user to experience, showing him a space that once was easy to define, now seams open to imagination and endless.

affining the sequence to get to a more fragile and subtile approach which also plays with the dimensions of the proto-structure.
the focus was set on a sequence of doors that when looked at, through a certain angle (the painter's one as it happens in the painting), gives you a view of the depth of a hallway that disapears when the angle is changed.
The idea was to repeat this set of doors so that the hallway could be extended an infinite amount of time.
Also, the plaster was at first builded in one block, and then separated into three blocks, which brings a view of how the sequence is created (by cutting) which also gives a specific look and texture to the plaster. Moreover, it shows us how the space beetween the three new blocks, when changed, interacts differently with the dept of the hallway, the view and the feeling of an human being that would be in this space.
