sloth is a matter of time – insight


Sloth is the most docile and tranquil sin, because with sloth you sit back and watch all the other sins take place without interfering. Within the arcade I have turned sloth into a solitary place with private booths but no so private that you can’t be observed during the sloth act. Sloth will be placed high in the arcade so there is a complete view of all the other sins. This is to replicate hanging around the tree tops. In this space it to maintain peace and gather your thoughts for a while whether it’s on your lunch break or just to escape from reality for a while.

 

.Thinking into the research of sloth its a sense of lost time and no acknowledgement of time slowly disappearing, the thought that this is taking place within the whole arcade rather than one space.

.Using research into how casinos design their environments to make people stay there longer without acknowledgement of what time of day it is. And use these findings into designing the miller arcade.
