The sky acts as a mirror

Model 1:40 – 11cm(h) x 12(l) x 13 cm(d)
Commissioned by Provincie Gelderland.

Provincie Gelderland wished to visualize and share local, popular stories with tourists and inhabitants by land art works as a boost for tourism. These stories were very common and they made me wonder about the untold, secret narratives from real lives of real people. In this area, the local culture is known as traditional and religious and personal, uneasy stories are usually not shared. To make room for those untold stories, I proposed this room where visitors can secretly reflect on their personal stories in silence. The room has no corners and no ceiling, which makes it possible to share your thoughts and stories with the surrounding landscape and the sky.

 

The proposal was one of the three winning sketch designs for the Kerkenpaden land art project on the Veluwe. However, due to local political reasons, not any of the winning Kerkenpaden land art works was ever realised.
