In 2019, the room installation "Raum 50000" was created for an exhibition called Simultaneous Time Signal. Change In Keeping With The Times. 12,000 strands of champagne corks hang from a light steel structure and, what at first glance looks like an impenetrable cork cube, reveals itself at first touch as a flexible space, inviting people to loose themselves within. Or perhaps discover themselves instead?
One step in and visitors both find and lose themselves in a unique atmosphere of light and sound. Every movement, every step causes a change in the soft light that shimmers from above between the individual strands. A resonant rustling of cork swells whenever you turn and quietens when you stop and stand. Stroke the corks and they respond again.
You are all alone; perhaps you feel like calling out to others or maybe you will simply enjoy the sensation of becoming one with yourself and this new world around you. Perhaps new thoughts arise; maybe doubts drive away all thinking.
Perhaps you want to meet someone in this room. Maybe that person is you.
