BUBBLE

Gunnar Krempin Installations

As part of the festival topic  ‘SATT’, we examine how a saturated space would look,  and when exactly it is saturated. Is it the abundance of material that saturates the space, or is it the the narrowness of a space, that reaches the moment of saturation through its visitors? How does space change in its various degrees of saturation, and …
