The Scottish landscape was my main inspiration for the installation 'Corridor'. While walking in nature I was sometimes caught in a thick mist. Scottish fog appears and disappears so rapidly you just can't grasp it. As far as form is concerned, I experience fog as an 'in between' zone; a situation between dream and reality. One drop of fog would not strike the eye, but thousands of them create a surreal atmosphere. Because of this I made an 'in between zone' in the shape of a long corridor (1 decametre), that goes from one pole/room/moment to another pole/room/moment. Thousands of parallel stretched fishlines form together the walls and roof of the corridor. One fishline is extremely fragile, but a lot of them are able to create a field of tension between two poles.
