Art installation is just for the sake of beauty?
Can art transform the perception of a space?
How might we extract the spirit of a space?
Can we creat a conversation among art, space and customers?

This is a project held by a design firm named AGUA. Designers are required to modify the interior design of the appointed store, shop or restaurant under the budget of 999 NTD (33 USD). The main purpose of the reorganization and redecoration is to create a new look and a new spirit that best represents the place and attract more customers.
We chose a restaurant called “God’s backyard” to launch this project. The restaurant is owned by a Christian couple so our concept is derived from the Bible, where Christians are depicted and allegorized as the sheep in God's backyard. Therefore, we designed a series of items with the repeatedly appearing motif of sheep. We designed a flock of sheep in different texture and arranged them in the yard, on the tables, around the bookshelf… every corner in the restaurant. Some of them are installation art that welcomes costumers and others are table games which people can play before or after the dishes are served.
