This dining table accommodates for Kerr's power to influence through display and Keller's pulsating power from within, thus it is an object which symbolises a symbiotic relationship between the two's powerful personality.
The platform like side of the table is Kerr's side providing her a neat space to dine and display her fashion. This side of the table also contours out into steps where Miranda is liberated to stand on the table and visually communicate her ideas on the platform rather than verbally communicate to Keller. This allows not only addresses Kerr's need for display but also allows Keller to develop her senses.
Keller's space is the curved side of the table which enables her to routinely play with her senses making the dining experience something that is distinctive every time she sits down with Kerr. The arching in of the table side takes into account Keller's blindness, where softening a barrier is preferred than a barrier that is solid. Thus this feature allows Keller to feel her way around the table rather than being cautious of sharp edges.
Kerr's Elevator -Draws a sense of barrier between the occupier and the onlookers The concept behind Kerr's elevator is that power could be gained and perceived as something that inspires innovation. The assembly of the elevator as a catwalk or a platform where Kerr will be displaying her fashion style, leaves room for those below the bridge to admire and be inspired by the new trend.
-Invites the occupier to interact with their surroundings The concept behind Keller's elevator is that power pulsates from an individual's persistence and courage to achieve their aspirations. Keller's elevator will allow her to be the centre of attention but in the same time allows interaction with her surroundings so as to empower her disabilities.
As seen in the above image captures, I have gotten rid of the vegetation and rocks used in my first valley draft. The reason for this is that the plants and rocks are not endemic to the Australian desert and therefore the valley or the landscape looks very much artificial and synthetic. This time round I am aiming for an abstraction of the Australia desert landscape to compensate for the lack of vegetation.
