YOU CLOSE, YOU OPEN
YOU OPEN, YOU CLOSE

model 1/20 & object 1/1.
1952-2018. a reinterpretation of paul rudolfs flaphouse.

like a tiny temple, lifted from its surroundings.

400-800THz ...a narrow window makes our observed reality.
in gradient with colors of visible light.

while reflecting the given context into its surface,
its structure expresses architectural boundaries.

exteriorizing the interior.

YOU CLOSE, YOU OPEN
YOU OPEN, YOU CLOSE

32 doors are interconnected.
in opposite pairs. 10,10 & 6,6.
16 doors are open.
16 doors are closed.
always.

YOU CLOSE, YOU OPEN
YOU OPEN, YOU CLOSE

...but yes YOU can choose.
always ;)
