A pale concrete structure is embedded in the lushness of a slope. The entire form is gathered around a nave made out of massive wood; between wood and concrete, a passage and an inner space are spun. As a staircase carves its way through the volume, it binds the structure even more tightly together, while it connects to the ground. The passage opens up into the inner space, where the wooden core forms a niche, a bench. The ceiling opens up from the wall to reveal a thin slice of sky, a cut, through which light trickles down and both rain and autumn leaves are allowed to be part of the space. The boundary between what is inside and what is outside is blurred. The idea is to inflict as little damage as possible on the site, conceptually as well as visually.
Illusion is a music installation where six loudspeakers create a moving and changing space. The music moves between real and unreal, external and internal, near and far. The perspectives shift constantly and contrasting sounds are woven into a large, polyphonic structure. The natural sounds on site change through the musical shadings and nuance a floating shape that gradually changes the listening experience. Illusion plays with the concepts of space and time, for one moment establishing a specific place and a specific time, and in the next moment it will slide into something completely different.
