Christine Cai’s final project with the MArch Design Studio 22 is titled the “Journey of Object [X]”. The project is based on an open research strategy used to study the communities of Persian Gulf particularly of the Strait of Hormuz.

As a part of the initial brief Christine was asked to design and make a device, which would help raise awareness of the silent communities surrounding the periphery of the Strait of Hormuz. Her design comprises series of lenses assembled with laser-cut components into a cloaking device that renders ‘Object [X]’ visible and invisible as it passes through the lenses. The device symbolises the informal trading communities of the Strait.

The 125 Fund helped pay for the materials and transport costs.
