Gazing Back’ : Zeist : 2010
A plan for the insurance company PGGM in Zeist. The location for the main sculpture was a 10 meter deep atrium cutting through three floors into an under-ground parking garage. The sculpture was to act like photo-cameras on mangrove-like tripods, capturing the environment they’re in. Quite literary ‘eye catching’, the sculptures would ‘take’ images, not in a dark inner space, like in a camera, but on their reflective stainless steel surfaces. Some reflections of the surrounding facades would be imprinted on the sculptures like tattoos or bas-reliefs. The sculptures were to be seen as ‘vanishing points on stilts’, artworks that ‘look back’ to the setting they’re in.
