Safe House

Danielle Butler

Safe House is an immersive, multi-sensory installation for one. Sound, lights, and air current shift as a visitor interacts with the space, changing to reveal different aspects of an environment that can only be experienced from the inside of a small hanging house.


Sanctuary is a multi-sensory installation for one. It is a small hanging house. If entered a visitor discovers a world that juxtaposes the one outside in scale and content. Inside is a forest. Physical trees grow up towards the sky, roots burrow into basement rooms. Multiple sound channels immerse you in the woods on a mild summer day. Yet, if one of the basement doors is opened the environment changes. Sounds, projections, air current and light shift to reveal storms and seasons, layers of emotional states.
