a safe place for people i love or; How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love Weathering The Storm is an upholstered soundproof and lightproof deprivation room that participants can enter alone or with a group of people. When the room is closed, the people inside control who can enter and exit the space. This is a situated place to sit out and away for a moment. The structural details of the room are based on various types of safe spaces, including weather shelters, politically driven hiding spaces, and structures of control including spaces for therapeutic purposes or to keep society safe.
