Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Gilmore, Barr
Abstract:

The Colour Barr is a new species of contemporary furniture—one that embeds the unleashed potential of the unconscious mind in its symbolic form, that challenges screen-based social networking in favour of an embodied social experience, and that looks spectacle straight in the eyes and says, “I understand.”
Welcome to The Colour Barr—a new self-portrait in the form of a sculpture-cum-functioning cocktail bar. Let me open up the bar, while you open up yourself to new intoxicating elixirs, interesting cultural mixes and stimulating symbolic exchange. What awaits is nothing less than transformation. Let’s get this party started.
Does The Colour Barr perform you? Or vice versa?
You decide how best to represent yourself. Value and meaning await those willing to engage at The Colour Barr.
