Covering the windows at SiTE:LAB with transparent and semi transparent materials creates a situation where a viewer must look at the windows and not through them. This intended redirection of expectations is created by using ordinary materials for unusual purposes. Hand cut contact paper (shelving paper) is patterned after a graphic element found on the facade of the building, referencing it without directly copying it. It is then repeated across all of the windows, lit and backed by scrim; the pattern disappears at times, casts shadows, and sets up anticipation for the interior.
