SHIFTING STEEGJES

Immersing people in the every day.

Instead of introducing them into a whole new world, Morgan uses movement, positioning and framing to immerse an audience in what is already there. A rolling bed becomes her main tool and the physical space becomes her material.

This bed on wheels takes the spectator through an immersive journey in Abraham Dolesteeg. The unusual change in perspective and mobility allows them to surrender, relax and experience space differently but also imagine variations of the same space.

They are guided through an experience in complete comfort and taken through space while audio adds a narrative layer. This sound creates a relationship between the local and the foreign experience of an alley. It directs the spectators gaze and allows space for personal associations even if she is specifically referring to an alley from her home country.

Morgans research is about dissecting the layers that entail immersive experiences and developing a set of strategies to create them. How to create immersion and what role does interactivity play in it? Read her Final Research Document to find out more.

Morgan Henry

Morgan Henry is a Dominican architect and scenographer currently based in The Netherlands. Her interests in space have evolved through time and what started off as designing permanent spaces shifted to designing ephemeral spatial encounters.

She focuses on creating immersive experiences where spectators can take a break from reality and let go of everydayness. Seeking for multiple possibilities of playfulness and interaction between the space and spectator, she makes the spectator discover the importance of their role within the experience. Space becomes an evolving entity that can only exist with the participation of the spectators.
