Dwellville, a village of emotional dwellings, is a series of visual forms accommodating intangible memories. These physical, touchable forms invite attention, connections, and interactions with our memories. The installation integrates real stories, graphics, and 3D shapes to show a process of visual interpretation. The project proposes a new mode of retrospection by exploring how to express our emotions graphically and spatially.

To dwell means to live or to think. And specifically with this project, to stay with our recollections.

Dwellville is also a state of the coexistence between memories and their owner.

The series of 3D posters explains the transition from floor plan to the dwellings.

The thesis book documented the process of this project.
