Project description

A semi-reflective equilateral triangle provides an intimate, courtyard-like enclosure that both frames and intensifies the perception of the forest.

Within the enclosure, the colour of the glass establishes a sense of spatial definition, while its semi-reflective surface creates surprising perceptual readings that change with the conditions of light and the visitor’s position towards trees and angles at which glass corners meet. From the outside, the installation is physically understood, but its receptor quality transforms it into an enigmatic object. This installation was originally created for the 2003 edition of the International Garden Festival.
