On the occasion of the Sea Art Festival at the Biennale in Pusan (South Korea), the Berlin artist Marc Schmitz designed a walk-in sculpture. It provides the viewer with a new and unusual spatial experience in the midst of a busy environment: upon entering, one perceives only the light blue inside of the funnel and the sky.
Walk-In Sculpture for a New Spatial Experience
The three-metre-high construction consists of a spatially double-curved steel frame made of hollow sections. A light blue inner membrane and a red outer membrane are stretched over it. The membranes are attached with a laced rim. The inner diameter of the sculpture varies between 0.8 and 4.6 m.
Werner Sobek was responsible for the overall planning of this art project.
