Tidal Museum, designed by our collaborators Studio Other Spaces, is a proposal for a new art museum on the west coast of Denmark, which would be situated between the dunes and the sea. It uses the movement of the tides to shape both the boundaries of the museum and the spaces within it. High tide floods some of the spaces, while at low tide the museum expands into the landscape. Visitors experience a highly flexible building that continually changes depending on the weather, time of day, season, and level of the sea. Visit Studio Other Spaces for more information.
How can art help us imagine our future world? This light-installation by artists Timo Aho and Pekka Niittyvirta uses sensors that interact with the rising tidal changes, activating on high tide - providing a visual reference of future sea level rise
Sourdough reunion: Last year, the kitchen team gave a jar of sourdough starter to everyone in the studio. Now they were asked to bring back a loaf of bread made from that same dough – incredible how the same starting point can yield such diversity. More here: soe_kitchen
Revisiting and testing 'Eine Beschreibung einer Reflexion, oder aber eine angenehme Übung zu deren Eigenschaften' from 1995. When I moved to Berlin over 20 years ago, this was the work I exhibited at my very first solo exhibition at neugerriemschneider (with whom I still work), and it was also the first exhibition in their space. The work will be part of 'In real life', opening at Tate Modern this summer. via Instagram
