Fluid matters

Ortega y Gasset said once that, “the earth being a field without limits, mankind had to delimit a portion of this field in order to release itself from it. Mankind erected walls to determine a portion of earth, creating thus a closed and finite space.”
With walls, a new reality appeared, as walls are a boundary per se. Dividing, isolating and segregating, walls allow us at the same time to perceive space for what it is.
With a set of computer ventilators and fabric, the concrete walls of the exhibition space waver subtly, and it is as if the whole space had become unsteadily. Engaging in a discussion about inner and outer space, the wind coming out of the walls reverses the common and unquestioned assumption about protective and enclosing walls.
