Mixed media 41.00 x 10.00 x 6.00 m Urbane Künste Ruhr Dortmund, D 2014
The Polytopos Dortmund* is part of the B1 – A40 – Schönheit der großen Straße II exhibition which is located along 60 km on the Autobahn A40 through the Ruhr area. The work was developed in collaboration with the Department Spatial Planning of the University Dortmund.
Located under the Schnettkertal highway bridge, it is an object between function and an euklidic, abstract structure. The weight of the bulk becomes an image of landscape itself and reflects the permanent changes of the surrounding area. It provides space for five emblematic symbols which display the outcome of a research group in a cryptic way. Students of the Department Spatial Planning curated a program to talk of their reseach and share it with the public, a temporary auditorium that changed every week.
