Every film composes of thousands of stop motions. This continuation of frames produces the illusion of a moving image, freeing our minds to see what is within and beyond. The designers freeze and extract these motion fragments, embedding the elements within the cinema perimeter.

Upon stepping into the ticket office, the counter and the wall act as if they have a life of their own. The counters were supposed to be a gigantic regular shape. However, they rotate slightly towards various directions and angles, mimicking the life of a creature. This scenario reminds one of the scenes in some science fiction movies, whereas a creature alters and articulates to a certain extent, devising a distinct life form.
Up the ceiling, at a precise moment every individual slide owns a different
shape. Some of the white ones are light boxes, flying towards various dimensions to form a unified shape. They scattered all over the place, but seemingly as if flying towards the same direction, waiting to combine and configure a new life form. The wall also adheres the same concept; pieces of irregular fragments simulate stop motions, as if to regain the form as a whole. The materials being exerted on this project are relatively simple, which includes stones and stretch ceilings. By contributing more emphasis on the finished art form, the materials and colors stand a less important role.
Auditorium extends the illusion of stop motions. All over the walls are two-dimensional graphics moving towards various directions. They act as individual frames to record a single moment, whereas unifying to create a bigger picture or sequence. Graphics of the carpet illustrates bits and pieces, like a greater shape being torn apart. The vibe of still shots continues to linger throughout the operation.
