a special identity for each classroom, and become an expression of this
in the public corridor. Visually kinetic, they are interactive and offer
creative options. The physical process of entry, passing through
a door is transformed into an experience of opening,
an extension of learning as a process of personal growth. The door
as threshold to expanding minds. In the historic tradition
of incorporating sayings in schools, the top of each Threshold frame contains
a unique inspirational and thought provoking quote. Related to education
and the process of learning, these words and messages are revealed
or discovered through the participation and exploration of the students.
Thresholds function as a framing opportunity for class display. Colors
appear and change in the prismatic patterned film as you move, visually
activating both the quote and the surface of the Threshold.
