Nests of light|from Russia with love*

Is a nest on a tree already architecture or still a forest? The project was created for the purposes of the Archstoyanie festival in 2012 and responds to the question above: A manmade nest occupies a position in between: it is of evidently artificial origin, but “lives” on a tree and does not exist without it, it shines – but in the forest, where there is no one to shine for.The light gives the natural space a status of being habitable, developed by man. The clearing becomes a square, the tree becomes a street-lamp.

As compared to its dweller, a nest is more like furniture than architecture. A nest of light in the forest reminds us of interiors, of green suits and halls, corridors and vaults, of all the architectural undertakings that can be met in an ordinary forest. And then, by the power of imagination, a forest becomes a park, and the locality – a landscape!                     

Η εγκατάσταση που δημιουργήθηκε στα πλαίσια του Archstoyanie festival στη Ρωσία σηματοδοτεί ένα δάσος με φωτεινές φωλιές, μετατρέποντας με διακριτικό τρόπο ένα ακατέργαστο φυσικό τοπίο σε ένα πανηγυρικό τόπο.
