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?

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!

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
