Pass the Black Grid

You can visit the city's art gallery while on holiday in Linz. It is called the OK Center. Black ropes appeared thanks to the work of designers near the entrance door of the building between a wall of concrete and a staircase made of metal. These ropes are woven into a network similar to a complex openwork web. Bags filled with sand were applied to create vertical tension.
This installation is a replacement for a normal staircase. It is designed to make you feel the height while exploring the space around you. At first, you can just stand at the "zero point", admiring this amazing network. Then you have to go through it. The installation will also start moving at this time, creating an exciting view. It will bend in the amplitude of the arc to open the windows and connect in the arch. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
