PEER explores the inferred boundaries which define landscapes through the inferred boundaries of a room furniture suggests. A simple collection of shaker and mid-century modern furniture will be carefully curated to assemble the landscape of a writer's cabin aboard a docked ship. Situated at one end of the 15'-0" x 7'6" site, a single constructed view port is to be installed. The clear lens of the shrouded view port creates a visual threshold between a passerby, and the writer's furniture landscape similar to the camera lens between a landscape and the photographer. Conversely for the writer, the threshold viewport frames a view of the city landscape his room inhabits.
