is a boxed space, whose parameters and geographic positions remain indeterminate. Symbols that move around inside the box constantly redefine it.

Into the ceiling the template of an anglular line is cut, its shape refers to width and length of the architecture. On top of the space a microchip controlled drawing machine defines the position and brightness of seven lamps. By cutting out lightlines it projects dynamic maps into the experimental space. The walkable system is an apparatus with an open structure, all elements can be sensed.

Beeing interested in the feedback between perceiving thinking and acting, I explore the difference between physical perception and ephemeral appearance and the emphasis of process and time, while we are constantly constructing world out of foreign and familiar elements

Programming the drawing sequence I concentrated both on the vertical, the feeling of balance and gravity when we stand inside the drawing, and on the horizontal, the perspectives that turn a 3D space into 2 D and backwards. It is an approx. 11 min loop out of parts working with the floor, parts working with the construction elements of the box and parts working with perpective and horizontal lines that seem to open an inner to an outer space.
