Picture of the project 'View'
Year:1999, competition entry
Location:Bundesgartenschau Magdeburg (federal botany exhibition)
The illuminants of this project are sun, moon and the stars. A giant brass cube, observably reflecting the vegetal surroundings, is the first impression of this sculpture, that shall create a place of sublimity within the arrangement of the exhibition. Coming closer, a trenchlike entrance can be detected, that leads below the object and into the inside.There, instead of a roof, a pane of the sky in its current state of light stretches across room. The visitor, multiply reflected on the metal surfaces, perceives the cosmic dimension of light as a transcendent revelation.
