As soon as we become motionless, we are elsewhere

An outdoor spatial installation that alludes to notions of isolation, solitude, togetherness, contemplation, imagination, mental space, and silence.

The installation was open whenever it was allowed between September 2020 -  March 2021.

I shared the garden with artist Aletta de Jong whose white work on the brick wall, "Landscape" complemented the 12 islands with white seats that I created.

Sounds #1 is one of the four programmed sound events that took place inside the installation, on 27.09.2020.

The musicians that performed at Sounds #1 : Josué Amador & Arvind GangaGonçalo AlmeidacTrL (Lucija Gregov and Tisa Neža Herlec) feat. Philipp Ernsting

Many thanks to Anna and Leslie (TOT - The Orange Tree Art Project), Philipp, Alina, Nutzu & his team of utilitarian alpinists, and to everyone else who helped made this installation possible!

The installation I created was an ephemeral intervention in a natural environment.
But I wanted to create some mementos of the islands I imagined.
