PHOSPHORESCENCE

Phosphorescence is the bodily take on the poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost.

The multisensorial experience is an on-foot venture into a dark and low lit room filled with obstacles, guided by the dim light of a lantern in the protagonist's hand.​

STOPPING BY WOODS ON A SNOWY EVENING /

By Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.   

His house is in the village though;   

He will not see me stopping here   

To watch his woods fill up with snow.   

 

My little horse must think it queer   

To stop without a farmhouse near   

Between the woods and frozen lake   

The darkest evening of the year.   

 

He gives his harness bells a shake   

To ask if there is some mistake.   

The only other sound’s the sweep   

Of easy wind and downy flake.   

 

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,   

But I have promises to keep,   

And miles to go before I sleep,   

And miles to go before I sleep.

RENDERS TO HELP VISUALISE THE SPACE BEFORE MAKING /

Since the passage available was very tiny, marking out different volumes and paths helped find the best layout for the space.
