sluice

names a situation of transition, a permeable passage for the exhibition Tiefe Oberflächen a continous history of doubting built into the space of the tiefparterre, which is geometrically divided by 9 columns.

The installation is a test arrangement to experience a visual borderline in an architectural and optical system animated by the lightdrawing machines. Slighly nervous light signs: searching lights, anticipations and links transform the relationship between the built structure and its sorroundings as well as the one between the observer and the space around him. The observers become smugglers within an insecure area which has to be scanned by gazing and moving .
