Installation at Henry Urbach Architecture, New York City
Project: April – May 2005

IN HEAT stems from Friedrich Kieslers design for the 1947 “Blood Flames” exhibition at the Hugo Gallery, New York. His radical new concept proposed merging art, architecture and the viewer into a continuation of painted walls and floors which hosts and interconnects the artwork. “In Heat” develops this confusion of art, viewer and space into an even more radical way by introducing thermosensitive coating as interactive paintings where the viewer, creating a temperature shadow by touching, melts into the overall exhibition design. Everything gets flattened into an architectural surface with depth in time.
