What is this?
"The Boiler Room" rests upon the observation that while the world has undoubtedly moved towards globalisation,
in recent years we have witnessed a re-emergence of efforts to isolate nations and "reignite" a sense of national pride.
This has stimulated a resonating, everlasting tension.
This pattern has been accentuated by the recent Covid pandemic and its consequences,
where the world has come close to a boiling point.
The room addresses the various domains in which social and political issues are spatially intertwined while the Israeli boiler switches themselves serve as a tactile, sensory and visual representation of both global and national everyday life interactions.
Our design, selected to represent Israel at the London Design Biennale 2021, aims to enable people from all over the world to interact
and engage with each other's opinion both digitally and personally.
We invite you to take an active part in the design by turning on a switch
Whatever switch you choose will appear in the physical version of the installation at LDB 2021.
