Description

This work followed Skyline as a subtle variation continuing the enquiries of the earlier project. An installation which encouraged passersby to observe the place in front of The Royal Library in Copenhagen, through a 100 meter long line of black reflecting acrylic which was mounted along the waterfront of Søren Kierkegaards Plads. As weather conditions shifted, the reflecting line emphasized the surrounding environment as well as other ongoing activities. It also emphasized the place as a stage for unexpected experiences simultaneously with challenging visual readings of the urban context.
