Update: Facade project
BERLIN (DE) - Not too long ago we wrote about Berlin-based artist Carsten Nicolai designing an ongoing installation whereby a temporary arts centre, located in the capital city's Mitte district, would become a focal point of collective creativity. Now that the autoR project has been running for a duration of several weeks, it's time to revisit the plain white box to see what has become of it.
Described as a 'self-organizing process', autoR enables visitors to apply colourful, artist-designed stickers at random to the edifice's blank facade, a 'canvas' of PVC cladding, prepared as the project's first phase. Nicolai's stickers, a regular geometric form that comes in seven different colours, have the potential to be arranged in myriad ways, all freely determined and shaped by participating individuals.
