Abstract [en]

Vävda Tält

The installation is designed as an internal spatial experience which is formed out of your viewing relationship with a layered timber structure.

The structure is made of long thin timber pieces which are connected to make a single room. These pieces are woven together and form a space that has a variety of visual depths due to its constructed form.

The structure is composed to capture light.

The structure is covered in a translucent canvas material. The result is a covered layered room that works in both the daylight hours of the festival and the evening hours of the festival.

During the day the front aperture of the installation can be opened and will capture the unique low level angle of the sun at approximately 12:30 as it alines to Rådhusesplanaden.

During the evening three types of light are introduced each of which plays a different role in transforming your eye and as such the resultant space.

Light is captured and introduced to reveal and transform space.

The ground is made of damp bark which absorbs the light and softens your step within the changing room. 

The project was extensivley surveyed with Photographs, interviews and videos depicting inhabitation of the room by participants.
