The sky acts as a mirror

Provincie Gelderland wished to visualize and share local, popular stories with tourists and inhabitants by land art works. These stories were very common and they made me wonder about the untold, secret narratives from real lives of real people. In this area, these kind of stories are usually not shared. To make room for those 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.
Commissioned by Provincie Gelderland.
The proposal was one of the winning sketch designs for the Kerkenpaden project: land art on the Veluwe. However, due to local and political reasons, none of the winning Kerkenpaden land art works was ever realised.
