We would like to involve ourselves in this project with ideas linked to miniature worlds, models as an art form, and the possibles interactions between proliferating micro visual universe and viewers.
By creating a serie of floating models following the waterpod journey by witnessing its presence like traces of a vanishing dream.
The realisation of the models will be happening in New York inspirerd by what this place has to offer, the floating systems will be studied in Geneva as well as certain modular elements necessary to the models development. In order to find a place in the questions and aims that the waterpod project implicates, we started to think the first step was to define how the spectator would get acces to the mental strolling, when observing the models if those ones where to be out of reach, in the wake of the waterpod.
The suitable solution shapes itself with the use of the famous "Coin operating Binoculars", derived strategical war object that slipped into the tourism industry.
Those Binocular would allow us to create several points of view on board of the waterpod as well as the shores of the Hudson River.
The models conception will then answer to the interaction with the elements of its exhibiting environment like water and wind fluctuation and use those natural ressources as a way to animate the sculptures.
We'll inspire those floating worlds with narration that will take its sources from satyre,political headlines and historical or imaginary representation of urbanism.
This way we will take place in the project by creating micro-landscapes inspired from the world and rewriting its story,
so as to transpose those into the utopia aimed by the waterpod purpose. Under shape of cities or architectures yet to define, the models would invite the viewers to experiment subversive way of observing to renact the discovery of Unknown and "As agreed" lands.
