"How can form and material accentuate biomedical research?”

Section

Public art Norway invited us to give a three-dimensional answer to the foyer of Domus Medica, the Norwegian biomedical research center. The work suggested is a cocoon-like spatial construction made of 40 transparent polycarbonate cross-sections bound by a backbone of wooden discs. Three hollowed spaces are CNC cut out from the sheets, creating internal spaces. The work spans over two floor and provides associations to a living organism with transparent cells that is constantly changing. The sectional surfaces mirror the room in a chameleon-like manner that enhances the architecture of the building and reflects the light from the surroundings.
