The idea is to indicate the river visually in the metro tunnels. The working title Smaragd (Emerald) refers to the colour of the Isar river which should be visible in the tunnels.
Smaragd has been my recent contribution to a project competition for art in public space by the City of Munich. I wanted to win official support for the idea and a budget to continue the work professionally. From this point, the project is a question of power and public relations. The idea needs professional work and good friends to grow.
The City of Munich rejected the project in January 2017. I am open for new strategies, partnerships and maybe another city.
Starting with an ordinary sheet of drawing paper I did some experiments with folding bellows. The shape is an extruded rhombus. It has a broad and a narrow side. The narrow side saves space & keeps the minimum distance to the lamp, the broad side makes the visual surface bigger which keeps the light softer. The construction of the lamp is a highly improvised solution made out of bicycle pieces for testing the light appearance. It is important to mention that the lamp is a low-power lamp which does not produce any heat.
3,30 meters of bench (in two pieces) for the dlw munich office kitchen. Maritime pine plywood, assembled with 12 screws each. Stacked on one another they become a bar with the usual working height of 90 cm.
Best wishes for 2017. As an exception from the concept (donate instead of printing) this year there will also be a printed postcard.
Let’s build a sound bridge across the Isar river. A piano located on the island in the middle of the river will be connected to both river sides with tin-phones.
Project submitted for PMIY Munich competition, to be set up in september 2016.
It‘s time for a new feature for the garden.
