. Nonam

55’-0” x 65’-0” x 45’-0”
gestation period:: 72 months
damp / wet areas
clumsy projection
project documentaries > collect secrets > bloat > bounce > overflow > disappear
secret wiring

Nonam enjoys being in damp areas where it can secure down its roots and cool down its large amount of heat producing components. Nonam is a projection Stranj(er) that works with the local government and agencies to increase awareness of social, political and environmental issues. As a result, Nonam is typically placed in an urban settings where it can increase exposure to the issues being addressed. Nonam primarily projects unbiased documentaries through constantly showing the various views of the same issue.

Nonam however is occupied differently. Nonam is a secret collecting agent. The projection aspect is purely its cover to combat government oppression. Secret subscribers to Nonam are able to transfer belongings, thoughts, and anything secret through nano-transmission technology. Each subscriber has a wireless link to their secret storage unit in their permanent place of residence. In times of crisis, each user can transfer all their important data and belongings to Nonam and can later access them through the designated portals. Each subscriber has the combination to an elevator that will take them to a very confined outlet where they can download all their secrets.

Nonam is clumsy. Upon receipt of an overwhelming amount of secrets, it can get incredibly confused and mishandle the secrets. This will cause a great system glitch which results in projection of secret data.

Nonam is aware of its clumsy state. Once the data starts to overflow, its emergency response systems will activate and Nonam will start to bloat. Bloating will then cause the nano-transmittors to detach from the ground, creating a round and bouncy exterior on Nonam. Nonam starts bouncing around, on, and over the urban fabric causing damages until it finds a way to escape.

Nonam means well therefore it will disappear once it realizes it cannot keep any more secrets and relocates, in search of a new start.
