The kinetic energy between two people is a mysterious space that exists in a constant state of flux. Each individual’s comfort level depends on the environment and other individuals nearby. 

Comfort Zone uses sonar technology to determine the presence of another individual. Initially inviting the other individual to approach, The piece uses their proximity to gauge the comfort level.  If the individual comes to close, the piece will tell them to step away. Should the other individual get too close, the piece will call for help. The piece is calibrated so that when in a smaller space the comfort zone is smaller than when installed in a larger space

Comfort Zone is an exploration in kinetic energy and proximity with other individuals. It reflects space and our emotional intelligence in regards to our immediate surroundings.
