German architectural office J. Mayer H. has transformed the entrance hall of Berlin’s Berlinische Galerie with their new work Rapport – Experiments with Spatial Structure (until 9 April, 2012). The walk-in exhibition consumes the 10-meter high entrance area with a myriad of grey and black carpet cut into data security patterns, which flow over the walls and floor. The work circumvents the strict geometry of the gallery space, creating wild patterns of forms that cross over, entangle and lead our eye in many directions.
‘The considerably enlarged, repeating patterns produce a flickering impression and transform the white cube into a playful scenario of interpermeating forms and structures. Supplementary three-dimensional models translate the two-dimensional patterns into concrete forms,’ explains the Berlinische Galerie.
