The shape of time — a thought in space
SPACE, TIME, FORM, THOUGHT
The fascination of the terms:
Creatures of our language with past, present, and future.
She has a life of her own, almost untranslatable, her connotations infinite, alive.
The SPACE: physical, geographic, mathematical, social, philosophical and, and, and, and, and,
behaves as TIME, as FORM behaves to THOUGHT
Form and idea, statics and change, perception and meaning.
Referring terms changes perspectives and expands dimensions.
The work “A Thought in Space” by Hartung | Trenz in the inner courtyard of the office building completed in 2015 on Holzmarkt 1 in Cologne places the four terms SPACE, TIME, FORM and THOUGHT in a content–related and formal relation to each other and overwrites the three sides of the building complex with static and dynamic light writings.
Give space to the thought, give shape to time.
This space of vision and thought, which is constantly changing, not only reflects on architecture and its use, but it also declines four of the most important terms of our artistic work process.
