A secret window
We started with the thoughts of creating only an atmosphere as a pause place, rather than creating a space with objects. (in our everyday...The light seemed to be an effective way to do so. The atmosphere which we wanted to reach was that of the unusual and the unexpected. The unusual and unexpected reflects the character of Konstfack maybe in different ways but we have been thinking about this building. This building was a factory before and now it has been altered for institutional use. You feel the space as industrial. So the main character of this space is the alteration to an unexpected and unusual space. The light turned anyway to an object, to a source of light, the window. The window is unexpected in this place and a unusual sight in Konstfack since the look of it moves towards a more domestic way/appearance. This is how an atmosphere is created here with the help of light and a replica of a window. This installation communicates with the viewer in a visual way and gives it also a psychological character. Window can be seen as a metaphor object, the line/border between the physical and psychological, inside and outside, private and public. Window can be seen as a metaphor object, the line/border between the physical and psychological, inside and outside, private and public. One can relate to the window in many different ways as you can imagine what kind of visual experience the window may offer...Something about the exact position of the window.. the dark place..
