Perceptions by Saba Salekfard
Inspired by LA Design Festival’s 2018 theme “Design is for Everyone”, the “Perceptions“ series explores how multiple users experience the same space.
The proposed space is a church, a place accessible by all, while the users are defined by the famed “Myer-Briggs” psychology test. The test defines 16 personalitity types that most people identify with. Each drawing depicts a different personality type and their intrepretation of the church. Thus, as the personality changes, so does the drawing and its method of representation. Readers are ultimately asked to find themselves within the set.
The “Perceptions” series was displayed at the A+D Museum for a one-night event sponsored by DOPIUM.LA and the LA Design Festival.
