This site specific installation is on teh 5th floor of Facebook HQ Dublin and has three different sized zones taken from studies of comfortable personal distance zones. The carpeted installation is a place to inhabit and for use by groups or individuals that work in Facebook.
Theres a social zone - large orange and yellow circle with carpeted seating; the personal zone - the blue hooded circle with seating for two and the intimate zone under a large hood overlooking a great view of the city.
The 'field' carpet surrounding the circles is 'white noise' describing the in-between signaling and behaviors of interaction.
