Elevator Missed Connections

Places of transience generate a temporary anonymous community. None of these is generally more awkward than the elevator, where social norms are to stand facing the door and not really speak. The elevator however, is the one place where everyone in a building overlaps in public space. During the COVID-19 pandemic signage was placed in the elevator telling people to face the corners, making an awkward experience even worse.
    This project explores the community we are missing in the elevator, especially in the pandemic setting. Creating an online place, asking the individual to alter their activity in the elevator, and attempting to foster new meaning of the space the elevator provides.
