Wish You Were Here

SPACE is defined by absence. Absence is defined by the context, which envelops the space. The reciprocal relationship of the two is the beauty of Nordic architecture. Space carries memories encapsulated within its emptiness.

At a certain moment in the landscape, the sky and the mass of the earth approach a similar state, almost imperceptibly. In this state, sky becomes ground, and ground becomes a void to the sky. This flip, these FRINGES, denature the space, for a fraction of time.

A light house establishes a point of orientation, often between two mediums. In Wish You Were Here, the two mediums are represented by void and a transparent mass. Each is defined through the refraction of light the Common Ground.
