Paul Hilsen & Adam Reichow's House of Mats
Generally speaking, building a fort is something we have done as kids. This video is meant to show what would happen if building forts were common for young adults. Would we still play house in it? How would our exposure to pop culture shape this experience?
The fort was made in Cooke Hall on the University of Minnesota-TC campus inside the gymnasium for the men's gymnastics team. The materials used were all gymnastics mats and other equipment generally found within a gymnastics facility.
We decided to use this space of athletics because all members of the group participate in athletics and who doesn't love flipping around in foam pits.
