Work in Progress
As part of his investigation into the future of the high street and the potential uses of vacant retail spaces, Smeeing has been responsible for the design of the exhibition space of Platform 13 during the Work in Progress show at the Royal College of Art. The space was designed to allow quick transform and to be activated in different ways throughout the duration of the exhibition.
Through a practical and design-based understanding of space, Smeeing created basic structures, props and interventions. Throughout the week the space was used as a shared workspace, as a film set, a screening and a hair salon. The design of the space, with a structure and mobile parts, responded to these various uses of the exhibition space, whilst also providing space to display the objects and research of his colleagues.
