PLACES THAT ARE BUILT ONLY AS SIGNS FROM AFAR. GETTING CLOSER, THEY DO NOT HAVE A NAME

Blickle Raum Spiegelgasse, Vienna

Within a topographical space setting with mats and objects, the visitors are invited to bring themselves into a haptic and physical relationship to the surfaces and volumes.The specially produced and designed silicone objects are taken from a negative mold, analogous to a printing process with a positive pressure plate. The serial “prints” of the mats slowly remove parts of the mold, clean it and change it.The objects and olfactory elements contribute to an atmosphere that turns space into an organic container. In this environment, the philosopher Johannes Siegmund guides the visitors through a philosophical experiment that strives for a symbiosis of mental and physical experience.
