Cur­rent­ly the pearl is wait­ing for for a new host. These are pos­sible ex­plana­tions which were dis­tributed as part of the ex­hibi­tion (text in Dutch) (via Eidolon, Daniël Dennis de Wit)

String Vienna
Vienna, 2014
Self supporting inhabitable social sculpture. The installation is based on production system of large geometric inflated objects. Since the physical behavior of fluids tend to make all inflates spherical, thin parallel ropes are tied on opposite sides of the volume, keeping them parallel to one another. Filigree interiors of this technically invented system are never exposed to public. When the volume deflates, the ropes get loose and lay on the ground enabling compression of the installation. When the object inflates, the ropes tense to a perfect line again, strained enough to carry the weight of a human being. Bodies entrapped in 3D grid, flying in unnatural positions throughout superficial white space, resemble Dadaist collages. Impossibility of perception of scale and direction results in simultaneous feeling of immenseness and absence of space. (via Numen / For Use » Prototype)

With the hammer provided and your own resources you shape the metal box into whatever you choose it to be. After a few minutes or hours of hard work you become the co-designer of Do hit. (via Do Hit Chair | Droog Furniture | by Marijn van der Poll)

There is a tradition in the Hungarian villages when young folks send each other plates with fine selection of food as a friendly gesture. The recipient sends another platter in exchange and the senders become siblings and the gesture becomes the symbol of their friendship for life. When a baby was born these friends became godparents of the young one. Platters were also sent as expression of best wishes between family, friends or neighbours. When a young man sent a platter to his loved one it was considered as a seal of love. This old hearty convention became more and more particular during the centuries and it’s still alive – the gesture of bringing wine or cheese as a gift when visiting friends stems from this old tradition.We organized this friendship based tradition into a sophisticated system where the playful method of balancing the platter creates a special event out of giving gifts. There are 8 different platters for 8 different events – one with soda and lollies for kids parties, one with melon and ham for summer afternoon lunches, one with champagne, strawberries and cream for weddings, and one with wine, cheese and walnut for drinks with friends.
