The Tightrope walker Within the exhibition of art and architecture "Paesaggi Mirati", the installation "Tightrope walker" - designed and built by the duo of young architects Laura Crespi and Corinne Gallotti (from studio 48nodi), interprets the theme
At the “Paesaggi Mirati” art and architecture exhibition, an installation named “Tightrope walker”, interpreted the festival’s social utopia theme as the utopia of balance. Designed and built by Laura Crespi and Corinne Gallotti (a duo of young architects from studio 48nodi), the installation takes the form of a cabin, whose external walls are made out of 480 transparent plastic bottles and glisten in the sun. Beyond the curtain that serves as an entrance five small suns break the darkness: clear plastic bottles filled with water and attached to the ceiling to amplify the sun’s rays inside the cabin. Under each bottle, suspended by a nylon thread, is a small glass jar holding a germinating plant.
