Project inspired by artist Lucio Fontana 

This project is inspired by Italian painter Lucio Fontana who experiments with works in which he creates cuts in blank canvases with palette knives. The implication being that the act of ripping leads to an ex-post discovery of a situation where ‘tensile force is exerted upon the canvas surface’ which was up to then not visible to the eye. Project ‘Fontana ’involves replacing this ‘canvas’ with ‘air’. The originally homogeneous volume of air on the site is ripped up by 7 arched devices(GARDEN). ‘Nature’ would flow through these cuts inside to draw ever-changing contour lines.
