“We wanted to bring colour to life in a really unexpected way. Using string as a medium allowed us to introduce a strong architectural element while still conveying the emotions and sensations that different colours can engender”. Daniel Pollock, creative director of Jane.

Polish artist Monika Grzymala describes her work as three dimensional drawings. She studied sculpture, shifted to drawing and found her place somewhere in between. Rolls of tape are her “pen” of choice and she allows them to dive and ripple in all directions.
Savioz Fabrizzi - Protective canopy for the archaeological ruins at St. Maurice Abbey, 2010. A large “floating” covering, made of steel mesh and corrugated translucent plastic, is hung from the mountain side via a network of cables and hangs freely from any of the adjacent historical buildings. Thousands of rocks are placed on the canopy, which filters the light to the ruins below, provides the weight to stabilize the canopy from shear forces, and denotes the site’s history of frequent landslides.

Installation in the Greek pavilion of the 2012 Venice Biennale, by AREA Architecture
AREA’s Athens Charting installation at the 2012 Venice Biennale - Greek Pavilion unites four Athens city blocks into one, giant public space, in the form of a 3.3m x 2.5m paper model. Part urban survey, part spectacle, the model is entirely hand-drawn with blue ink on white paper. Representing the city as a continuous surface that is, nevertheless, heterogeneous and culturally inscribed, the model seeks to engage the dynamic and rapidly changing context that characterizes Greek cities today.
