"It was an incredibly spectacular car to drive. But when you were going quickly over tarmac bumps it was a real handful." - Ari Vatanen on the black Ford Escort
Spatial object sculptures by Michael Johansson
At the mere mention of the word Tetris, the game’s catchy electro song begins blaring in our heads. Artist Michael Johansson’s precisely stacked sculptures made from ordinary objects induce the same internal Nintendo soundtrack. Using found objects like old computer screens, keyboards, cars and suitcases, the Swedish designer creates incredible geometric sculptures - both inside the gallery and jammed into site-specific space
Pascal Flammer created this timber house in Balsthal. There are two principal floors; one set 75 cm below the earth, one 1.50 m above. The ground floor consists of one single family room with a noticeably low horizontal ceiling. In this space there is a physical connection with the nature outside the continuous windows.
The space above is the inverse. This floor is divided into four equal rooms with 6m high ceilings. The height defines the space. Large windows open to composed views of the wheat field. Whereas the ground floor is about connecting with the visceral nature of the context, the floor above is about observing nature – a more distant and cerebral activity.
Dream house / imagine turning one floor into a giant studio with paper and books and pencils everywhere.
