When experiencing a space, different appreciators can have different experiences, perceptions, and interpretations of meaning. Why is that so? What factors make a space meaningful for certain people, and what factors influence the perception and experience of space so that space changes into a place? A case study is the space in installation art. Space is generally understood in a limited way as physical space formed by space elements, such as four walls, floor, and ceiling. However, imaginary space, space sensation, and space formed by non-solid elements, such as space formed by installation art, have not been widely studied. Chiharu Shiota's installation art space is chosen as a case study because Shiota gives shape to human consciousness and non-physical experience to represent personal struggles, social and cultural identity through art. The analytical method used is a case study with existentialism theory. The results of this research provide an understanding that the interpretation of space is a process of contextualization, recontextualization, and decontextualization of meaning conveyed by the artist, a process influenced by the existential nature of the reader's background.
