As part of the Architecture Biennale di Venezia 2014, ‘Fundamentals: Form-ContraForm‘, is an installation that reflects on the concept and perception of space, time and existence by Bekkering Adams architects.
The installation Fundamentals: Form-ContraForm explores the experience of mass and its space around it. The installation is designed to provide an experience that is not bound by the physical limitations of a space and give the illusion of space that is extended beyond its tangibility. To do this they hung a series of 14,000 white spheres that loosely formed a cube of 2,4 x 2,4 meters hanging on a wire grid of 10 x 10 cm. The cube is optically present in the room, and inside the cube, a cavity is created where visitors can enter. When one is standing inside the cavity, they are surrounded by a cloud of spheres that create the illusion of infinite space.
