These are images of my final prototype model that sums up my Project 2 as a whole and what sort of direction I want to take through to the MA Project.
You’re probably wondering why it has square wheels?
The main idea behind this model was to replicate inaccessibility and invisibility through model making. The reason why the model wheelchair has square wheels to represent inaccessibility; the wheelchair is unable to move due to an inaccessible design.
I have chosen to use clear acrylic as the only material in this model and this represents invisibility; wheelchair users say they feel invisible to others around them in public places.
In the MA Project, I will be focusing on inaccessibility and invisibility, and design an interior space that is completely wheelchair accessible and to promote and enhance the users visability.
