Thinking about the way how to fill in the gallery space, we found out that everything important is already there in great extent. The space is empty today, filled in only by air that is invisible. Nowadays, it is not a problem, at all. We can make air visible quite fast and easy- we can create fog or even smoke (breathable and conductive for a human being). Creating fog or smoke in the gallery is not so innovative. We therefore went onwards. How could we take control over this fog/smoke, move, modify or direct it? We created a system of air nozzles, placed in the floor and ceiling, controlled by computer. These air nozzles can control, move or even model fog/smoke with aid of flow of fresh air.With aid of thin flow of air that flows in the space from the ceiling to the floor, we can create boundaries of walls that would be filled in by fog. We can therefore create cubic materials and shapes made up of fog/smoke. These natural elements are presented in our concept in a completely different way as so far.
We decided to portray the entrance spaces as an entrance gate into the new world. We chose a simple glass wall that can be opened in its middle part. The thermal hedge in this open part is made up of flow of air. Fog is placed behind this glass wall. There are many possibilities how we can work with this fog in the entrance part. The representative works of art can be exhibited there or it can be automatically melt away when the visitors stand in front of the door.
All the important things in the lobby are made up of fog. We designed simple furniture- sitting area and reception desk created by simple cubic surfaces under which the fog slowly moves. The air nozzles placed in the circumference of furniture avoid fog from getting away and they give cubic shape to furniture. Simply creatable walls from fog give the possibility to hide the entrance into the security room or even to create a space for coats. The columns are all covered by fog, as well. In the space they disappear, what brings openness and airiness to the whole place.
The VIP zone for guests can be detached very fast and easy. Whereas the placement of walls is absolutely flexible, the VIP zone can be modified according to the number of guests. Into the VIP rooms we placed a sofa, a table and smaller spaces for art exhibitions. All the furniture is designed based on the same principle as furniture in the lobby.
With aid of fog, clean and open exhibition space can be transformed into whatever we want. The atmosphere of the whole space can be changed, literally by click on the keyboard. This system provides freedom to artists that exhibit in the way of organizing the whole exhibition. Another great advantage of fog is that there we can perfectly work with light. We created a system of lightening sufficing for exhibition purposes that can be completed by further lightening, if needed. The lightening together with fog can create the right atmosphere for any occasion.
In the exhibition space there is a wall in which there is a door into stairs, storages and supporting spaces. We decided to cover this wall with the wall of fog. Around the door we placed air nozzles that can blow fog away and make the door visible.
