Since the tutorial I have had a go at the conceptual collage:
This is following my current thoughts of creating ‘tanks’ for the experiences, situated within the voids between the main concourse and the waiting room to combine them. The space between the columns is similar to some of the windows on the waiting room, and will incorporate walkways like the arch windows at the ends of the main concourse. The intensity of the tanks (as they are the holding before the experiences are released into the main concourse for proper implementation) could be a way of fulfilling the mega pause? Maybe.
The suggestion at the tutorial of the weather being carried away on the trains is great and one I’m running with. I’d been thinking of how to site the experience at other localities within the city, but this retains the site specific nature of the haze whilst allowing dispersal from the epicenter of Grand Central.
Hopefully that’s all clear in the collage. The tanks may change or develop – but for now that’s where my vision is! (Or has been since the tutorials). I’m going to work on actual practicalities of this and the small detail next (if the tanks were used, how would the smoke machines be positioned if it’s suppose to be released from the tank? How can I ensure the smoke is at floor level? Or are the tanks a visual predecessor for the event happening within the concourse?)
