Ocean Room | Exhibit

Ocean Room is a large-scale, life-sized dome designed to serve as a meditative space. Only 1-2 people are allowed inside the dome at a time and participants are encouraged to rest there for as long as they want. Video projections of the oceans illuminate the exterior walls of the dome, while the sounds of waves fill the space inside.

This hand-built space aims to be a refuge for students, faculty, and community members-a place where they can find peace and quiet within the chaos and pressures of Duke. The goal is to provide a space to rest, reflect, and meditate in peace on campus. The installation also aspires to explore the dynamics between space, refuge and human interactions-and above all, the idea that art spaces can foster human connections.
