The basic decision to open a door or close a door, like any binary system, creates many complex pathways. Four pre-hung doors are screwed together to make a square module. 24 of these modules of 96 doors are joined leaving a door width between each module. Doors are locked opened or locked closed by the museum staff according to predetermined diagrams to create many pathways. A feeling of seemly endless hallways, closets, pathways of doors open and closed, it feels both like a home and a nightmare.
