At the time of commissioning, Ella Heather-Moore was a second year Liberal Arts student. She collaborated with architecture student Jessica Gardener to design a soaring architectural seating structure for urban public spaces.
The Stage Is Yours is a seating structure design that plays with the flow of people through busy urban spaces. It encourages the public to weave dance-like pathways through a space with opportunities to interact, pause and unite.
Rapidly, our world is becoming increasingly digitalised. We bury our faces in screens and commonly exist in a virtual reality- causing us to miss chances for spontaneous encounters with others within daily life. My idea seeks to re-invigorate urban public spaces by enhancing this notion of an improvised urban choreography- helping keep the rhythm of our cities alive. Ella Heather Moore
The Stage Is Yours: Kindness Seating Installation was first presented online in October 2020.
