SPACEA metaphysical resource that weall use, and are slowly running outof. Many areas require our ownpersonal space, which we aredenied on an increasing basis.
PRIVACYThe state or condition of being free frombeing observed or disturbed by otherpeople.As space becomes less and less, privacysuffers...
ATM’SA cash machine is a perfect example of apublic space where the need for privacy iscrucial.The sense of encroachment from the linebehind is an uncomfortable one. The feelingthat your personal details are being staredat creates unease and worry...
OPINION‘People want some kind of barrier betweenthem and those behind, I don’t feelcomfortable otherwise...’‘I’m always scared someone is looking overmy shoulder, it’s scary that they could belooking at my details.’‘I try to shield my pin, but theres alwayssome people who seem to encroach...’
OPINION‘We want our ATM machines to give outa positive image, we want them to be aservice people feel completely at ease at.’‘We have put up barriers and bollards toencourage people to give more privacy tothose at the machines in the past... butthey look imposing and ugly.’
OUR AIMWe wanted to use an object to create abarrier between people when using themachine and restore that sense of personalspace.Unlike barriers and bollards, the pigeonsdo not overtake the space, yet they stillmanage to define it.
PIGEONS?Pigeons invade people’s space every day.They have become an every day part of ourenvironment, with many people wanting toavoid them.These pigeons invade your space in aharmless way, so that other people cannot.
