5 fabric follies are stretched to fit and fill a room. Each a different color and growing in size. They are stellated and intended to reference star like geometries. Sewn out of spandex fabric. They are bright and tactile. Inviting visitors to enter inside each folly to be immersed and saturated in color. The follies fit tightly in the room allowing only a few feet of path between them forcing visitors to engage and meander between and around the follies. They are hung at a height to also force visitors to bend down to enter the folly, creating a clear barrier between interior and exterior of the space.

The colors are along the CMY pallet and transition from warm to cool colors across the room. The walls are covered in silver Mylar creating reflections of these colored follies to go beyond the objects and fill the room further.

The follies are sewn with a serging sewing machine so that the edges can stretch and pull as they generate more hyperbolic forms forms as the fabric is stretched to attach to the walls and ceiling.
