readymade / Spatial Installation

readymade
readymade

Our interest was to investigate the potentials of materials and products to generate space: transforming a standard, ordinary form into an extraordinary one. Creating an extensive spatial work, starting with the smallest possible unit. In search of a product with the potential of creating space and reflecting our faculty, we came upon the folding metre stick. It is THE tool of the architect and at the same time the link between the architect and the craftsman. The whole installation is composed of 1.148 metre sticks, interlocked, overlapped, bolted and fixed with plastic fasteners. The resulting walls were erected without any further support.
