Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world? From Matrix, 1999.
RÄUME DENKEN/CONCEIVING SPACES. Three plywood boxes with identical dimensions will be positioned at an orthogonal angle to one another within the space – one with its longitudinal side, one with the wide side and the other with the narrow side facing towards the others. Each cube has an opening in a different place on the side that provides an insight into its inner life. Inside, there is a congruent spatial sculpture made of slabs of lightweight material. These model shapes of different sizes are illuminated by two light scenarios: the exposure to light and differences in the dimensions – in this case the potential extension in terms of depth – play with the viewers’ perception of space.
