As humans, we are the activators of dust, yet we fail to understand how dust affects our interior environments. My thesis celebrates the accumulation of dust in space through a series of experiments, collections, observations and representations. Furthermore, the Parsons (School of Constructed Environments) second floor service elevator lobby serves as a testing site to study dust accumulation. As a result, the site and design implementations allude to the ephemeral character of dust and subconsciously make us aware of the dust that collects within our interiors, while proposing the potential to foster healthier environments.
