Numen/For Use

“About the spatial multiple-layer installation, a kind of giant hammock, in Hasselt/Belgium the net-workers say: ‘The project evolved from our interest in transparent artificial landscapes of ephemeral architecture in public space. Our ultimate goal is to cover closed backyards from wall to wall, one layer of net per floor, enabling the inhabitants to step out their windows into transparent landscapes. This will not only bring the possibility of sensation of flying but more importantly reinvent a concept of backyard as common place for all people who live there. The aim is creation of a net(work) for integration of neighborhood who became alienated in recent years, a kind of public balcony for a future community. For sure there is also the possibility to climb up to the “last floor” to have there your sun-bath.’ ”
