Using inspiration from Juhani Pallasmaa's The Eyes of the Skin, Welcome to Be Here captured authentic experiences of structure to prove that dance and architecture are fundamentally related by the active body, both grounded by the necessity of bodies in space. The world consisted of references to other places through abstraction of generated material.
