Простой объём / Simple volume
It was just a simple square volume, almost a surface with a slight thickness, we could say. Then I started to turn it 10° in plan and something changes, and then again 10° in section and it was totally enough. Suddenly from a static image to something definetly dynamic.
Visitors can be attracted by something that they think to know but start to discover it from another point of view.
We can also say that they can think to do not know what they have in front but eventually figure out that is something they know in term of spatial definition. In both of this cases it is interesting to play on the human perception’s border of the space, and let people try to evolve the idea of something simple in something complex by only changing perspective and not the object.
In the project the perception is not only from a long distance, but it is experimented also close to the volume and inside it. Even in this occasion what I wanted to reach is a new eye: from the direct outside you will get curious by the only thing you can see, a horizontal void where the bodies are hided and you can see just the legs of who is inside, which could be strange and new at the same times. Inside light come from above and if you want to see outside you have to forced your head again and change your view.
El Lissitzky’s Proun could be complex as significative in few simple gestures: perspectives and perception can be the only reading key of the space.
So yes, 10° were enough.
