Blue Windows was inspired by Fred Sandback’s Untitled (Sculptural Study, Two-part Vertical Construction) from1986. And then the idea of indoor windows, windows being blue, and the concept of glass, where an invisible plane can be right in front of you, but do you notice it?
I decided to work with string (minimalism) and architecture (grandiose). And I simply did two blue “windows” that were framed by grey “frames” and quietly collaborating with the space they were in.
It was important for me to not rudely interrupt any flow of traffic, so I didn’t. And then I noticed that even though the strings were right in front of most of the daily action the stairs experienced, it looked like no one noticed them. Which then led to the further idea of how fast so many peoples lives are these days, to the point where details are so often overlooked or invisible. And that connected with what windows are; basically a transparent plane that is not consciously looked at, but instead looked through.
