SPRAY is the manifestation of a "do what you want" project that embodies the ideals of 3AJEEB.
3AJEEB (ahh•jhee•b) is a playful Arabizi word meaning "strange in a strange way, cool in a cool way, and slightly weird in a slightly weird way."
The objective was to design a twelve foot by twelve foot area that contained space for two people to work and rest and space for an animal.
The space is an underwater spray paint studio, so the work being performed by the two people is cutting stencils and spray painting, while the rest is "sleeping with the fishes."
SPRAY was a four-part project that involved designing the space, researching the lighting for the space, constructing a model and building a human-scale version of the seating found in the rest area from cardboard.
A total of eight tubes occupy the roof of the studio: four solar tubes and four air filtration tubes. Every other tube is a solar tube and the remaining are air tubes for equal coverage.
The solar tubes utilize the reflection of natural light from the sun to bring in extra lighting to the portion of the studio that is below water to create a different ambience in the work space.
The air tubes work to ventilate the work space as a majority of the work being done here is spray painting. Stacks of fans cycle to push wasted air out and pull clean air in.
