Force II

B. Tschumi pavilion, Hereplein Groningen 1996


The Tschumi-pavilion in Groningen is a quite extraordinary small building standing in the centre of a crowded roundabout. It is mainly made out of glass and can be described as a glass box which is lifted off the ground on one side.

The image of ‘Force II’ was projected on two semi-transparent screens, placed inside the glass box on the outer edges. By analogy with the nature of the roundabout and the heavy traffic rotating there, the video-images rotate as well, in a very steady and slow way. No sound is used in this arrangement.
