earlier rendition of this object here
Object based on the floor plan of the Farnsworth House by Mies van der Rohe. The house is elevated and thus throws a shadow onto the ground in shape of the floor plan. The screen is interactive and permutable. One can turn it into shelter, or into a black board, open it up or close it off.
Carl Jung has used the shadow metaphor to explain that the more self-awareness the human mind gains the more clarity and transparence it will receive, and the less one knows about ones desires and drives, the blacker the shadow, an alternative version of the ego, will become.
The objectified shadow of the Farnsworth House is my attempt to discuss the transparence of the world, of communication in the form of glass, and internet glass cables, of literal and metaphorical windows in- and outside the private, intimate space.
