The installation tells a story about the cultivation of one’s “inner garden”, using mapping as a tool to adopt it to the given space. The heterogeneous white pillar standing in the centre of the space is defined as a sign or essence to be decoded. The column is surrounded by a forest of translucent but at the same time reflecting surfaces where the visitors have to find their way to the centre of the space – constantly misguided by their own or someone else’s reflection.
- Artificial Nature
The project accepts the dystopian vision and works along with it by artificially recreating one of the most essential elements of nature: fire. It is a campfire produced by machines: the sound comes from speakers, the heat is provided by an electric heater and the visual is recreated with a hologram.
The title as a medical term: “legal intervention with sharp objects”. The spectacle of tree trunks suspended from the ceiling in an orthogonal grid impersonates each tree and creates a funeral garden.
The installation represents the constant bond between nature and men. A constantly rotating and spinning machine is fixed to the boughs of the trees that surround the building, creating monotonous twitches among the canopy.
