This project is an experiment and philosophically thought on have to make a soft spot of the textiles properties at Ofelia Plads in Copenhagen. With textiles, daylight and artificial light, we wanted to create temporary spaces. Spaces where human interaction and consciousness is a part and defines the spaces as the atmosphere changes depending on the weather and the people’s interaction. We wanted to investigate how aesthetic phenomenons can be used to create different atmospheres. The aesthetic relates to all the things, that have a sensuous and phenomenologist character.
The atmospheres we have been working with are, the meeting trough materials and humans, the defuse human, outlook/inlook, the controlled/uncontrolled, the mysterious and behind the curtains. The atmosphere of the space changes doing the day, because of have the daylight, wind and night affects the temperature of the colors and the movement in the textiles
We wanted to make textile spaces in the urban space, Ofelia Plads, which is a place that have a mix of culture and nature, as Ofelia Plads is a part of the city’s culture places by the waterfront. By placing textiles in the public, we can meet people where they are without they have any presuppositions. We wanted the spaces to be mutable; by using daylight and artificial light we could make the atmospheres change during the whole day. Ofelia Plads is a big square so the near - and long distance experience is important. This means that we have been working with the shape as a sculpture and as a human-sized experience.
