PACE​ ​THROUGH​ ​A​ ​LINE 
 

This​ ​experiment​ ​is​ ​a​ ​work​ ​in​ ​progress​ ​and​ ​it​ ​intends​ ​to​ ​focus​ ​on​ ​the​ ​pace​ ​of​ ​waiting​ ​at​ ​the​ ​waiting​ ​rooms in​ ​the​ ​stations.​ ​A​ ​wait​ ​sometimes​ ​can​ ​be​ ​stagnant​ ​and​ ​often​ ​requires​ ​oneself​ ​to​ ​either​ ​break​ ​out​ ​of​ ​it​ ​or​ ​to remain​ ​as​ ​it​ ​is.​ ​I​ ​am​ ​trying​ ​to​ ​focus​ ​on​ ​the​ ​intermediate​ ​spaces​ ​of​ ​the​ ​wait,​ ​between​ ​Rest​ ​and​ ​Movement.

 

Pace​ ​being​ ​the​ ​speed​ ​or​ ​rate​ ​at​ ​which​ ​something​ ​happens​ ​or​ ​develops,​ ​I​ ​have​ ​tried​ ​to​ ​translate​ ​the activities​ ​of​ ​movement​ ​in​ ​passengers​ ​through​ ​a​ ​line​ ​and​ ​their​ ​Rest​ ​through​ ​a​ ​blotch​ ​which​ ​is​ ​invariably created​ ​because​ ​of​ ​the​ ​activities​ ​in​ ​the​ ​environment​ ​which​ ​is​ ​picked​ ​up​ ​by​ ​the​ ​device. 

 

This​ ​device​ ​draws​ ​lines​ ​depending​ ​on​ ​the​ ​movements​ ​around​ ​it​ ​and​ ​focuses​ ​on​ ​the​ ​Pace​ ​of​ ​wait.​ ​I installed​ ​Infrared​ ​sensors​ ​between​ ​the​ ​pillars​ ​of​ ​the​ ​seating​ ​area.​

​The​ ​device​ ​would​ ​be​ ​triggered​ ​when​ ​the passengers​ ​get​ ​off​ ​of​ ​their​ ​seats​ ​or​ ​are​ ​moving​ ​around​ ​in​ ​the​ ​limits​ ​of​ ​the​ ​sensor.​ ​Only​ ​a​ ​passenger​ ​who has​ ​just​ ​gotten​ ​off​ ​of​ ​his​ ​seat​ ​or​ ​moving​ ​around​ ​the​ ​set​ ​parameter​ ​would​ ​obstruct​ ​the​ ​infrared​ ​beam's​ ​path and​ ​trigger​ ​the​ ​sensor.​ ​The​ ​sensors​ ​are​ ​connected​ ​to​ ​a​ ​setup​ ​which​ ​contains​ ​2​ ​DC​ ​motors​ ​and​ ​a​ ​lever and​ ​hinges​ ​which​ ​control​ ​the​ ​movement​ ​of​ ​a​ ​PEN​ ​which​ ​draws​ ​lines​ ​according​ ​to​ ​the​ ​triggered​ ​sensors. Each​ ​motor​ ​is​ ​connected​ ​to​ ​a​ ​separate​ ​sensor​ ​which​ ​allows​ ​the​ ​device​ ​to​ ​achieve​ ​randomized​ ​forms​ ​that are​ ​created​ ​by​ ​the​ ​PEN.

Although​ ​many​ ​people​ ​were​ ​curious​ ​as​ ​to​ ​what​ ​the​ ​'Device'​ ​that​ ​was​ ​installed​ ​there​ ​was​ ​and​ ​what​ ​it​ ​does and​ ​how​ ​it​ ​works,​ ​only​ ​a​ ​few​ ​engaged​ ​in​ ​knowing​ ​the​ ​facts​ ​about​ ​it.​ ​Others​ ​looked​ ​at​ ​the​ ​device​ ​and perceived​ ​it​ ​to​ ​be​ ​whatever​ ​they​ ​understood​ ​of​ ​it.​ ​The​ ​people​ ​who​ ​engaged​ ​in​ ​a​ ​conversation​ ​with​ ​me couldn’t​ ​really​ ​related​ ​to​ ​why​ ​I​ ​have​ ​created​ ​this​ ​device​ ​as​ ​practically​ ​it​ ​has​ ​no​ ​function​ ​but​ ​only​ ​a​ ​purpose that​ ​is​ ​set​ ​to​ ​translate​ ​the​ ​movements​ ​in​ ​a​ ​set​ ​parameter.​ ​Most​ ​of​ ​the​ ​people​ ​somehow​ ​thought​ ​that​ ​the screen​ ​of​ ​the​ ​display​ ​board​ ​had​ ​to​ ​do​ ​something​ ​to​ ​do​ ​with​ ​the​ ​device​ ​as​ ​it​ ​was​ ​placed​ ​right​ ​below​ ​it​ ​and the​ ​wiring​ ​of​ ​the​ ​device​ ​was​ ​taken​ ​from​ ​near​ ​the​ ​screen.​ ​I​ ​like​ ​how​ ​each​ ​one​ ​could​ ​probably​ ​have​ ​a perception​ ​of​ ​the​ ​installation.​ ​Somehow​ ​I​ ​feel​ ​it​ ​left​ ​people​ ​curious​ ​to​ ​as​ ​only​ ​some​ ​made​ ​the​ ​efforts​ ​to reach​ ​out​ ​and​ ​get​ ​answers.  The​ ​installation​ ​has​ ​definitely​ ​opened​ ​up​ ​many​ ​more​ ​possibilities​ ​and​ ​giving​ ​me​ ​a​ ​deeper​ ​understanding of​ ​what​ ​I​ ​had​ ​visualized​ ​earlier.​ ​It​ ​is​ ​something​ ​that​ ​will​ ​developed​ ​over​ ​a​ ​period​ ​of​ ​time​ ​which​ ​gives​ ​me possibilities​ ​to​ ​look​ ​at​ ​the​ ​layers​ ​of​ ​pace​ ​in​ ​conceptualization​ ​and​ ​medium.
