spatial negotiatons
are a set of research-tools. They are portable structures being transported and placed within various settings. spatial negotiatons relate to their surroundings. Usually, one takes samples from chosen locations to gain new insights. I won’t take samples from landscape or city features but provide an additional input to correlate links and new subjects of observation and imagination. Thus, the set of spatial negotiators provides a new scale to their surroundings and highlights connections, divisions, diversities and interaction.
All works draw inspiration from the lay-out and maintenance of the Neringa National Park, an environment which at the glance appears 'natural'. Yet, it has been designed based on a grid pattern and implemented to ensure optimal coastal protection during the course of centuries. Even the trees are lined up in a grid when you first start to pay attention.
