[Im]permeability

The objects that I have decided to scan are quite different in intended use, but connected through their physical properties, particularly the notion of permeability. This concept possesses inherent implications within the built environment with respect to how people occupy spaces, though, for the purposes of this assignment, scaled down. 

The first, individual object is a glazed ceramic vessel. This object is impermeable in nature, as it is designed to contain another object. 

The second, collection of objects are sponges and and a filter. Though composed in such a way to replicate an object that is impermeable, these objects are in reality selectively permeable — allowing certain things to pass through while rejecting others. 

The final, spatial scan is that of the fireplace that exists within my apartment. Functionally, this is generally an inherently permeable object, allowing smoke and other particles to exit through a chimney. However, the fireplace is solely exists for aesthetic purposes rather than functional.
