Framing of the Surroundings

Design, Student Projects, Video





The task consisted in selecting a situation, a place or an object in the selected area of the map and preparing the documentation. The team focused on finding as many criteria, meanings and references as possible in the selected space; a place to view and crop the selected situation was selected. The object indicates that the city’s traffic and energy avoid the central point of the square. Paper sashes placed on a vibrating rod move in the wind and in the momentum of air caused by traffic; the installation was spaced to indicate the main axis of the church building.
