It seems like you're drawing inspiration from the paper leaves hanging from the ceiling. This uses the same material, paper, to give the material in bulk a new form. I wonder what the significance will be of a giant paper dragon hanging from the ceiling. Also, swaying it in some manner, by hand or using a vent, and projecting lights of different color are interesting options to explore.

I like your idea a lot, and I agree that combining pictures of various spots in CMU with different art styles is really cool. I would recommend surrealism artists like Magritte, Dali, and Escher. You can even play with the idea of time and infinite space if you have enough time. I look forward to your outcome, good job!
