Speaking at the Wall

speaking a wall

I used to hear voices in my head, but now they seem to be coming from the walls – am I back in to the womb? No wait.. it's a wall that reacts to the spectators voice (quicktime). The installation plays with the new notions of space offered by the digital/physical world and is meant as a pure shape of intuition. Italian design for narcissistic delight! We are awaiting a more advanced version of the wall that could, for instance, remember and show who was in a the room before. No wait... why not do a version with bananas?

Share your thoughts and join the technology debate!

The artpiece seems almost religious. I see a relationship with the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_Wall (Wailing Wall) in Jerusalem or the http://www.sacred-destinations.com/china/temple-of-heaven-beijing.htm (echo wall) at the Temple of Heaven (Tian Tan) Beijing, China. The wall is patient and will allways be there. Trust the wall. Feel its security; the wall of FAITH!

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
