During the Ostrale 010, SPAR*K is presenting COrtex, a project focusing on the space in between the feeding stables as a connection of the two buildings, as landmark object and ‘window’ for the Ostrale.
The existing pedestrian bridge will be transformed into a patial sculpture with 1500metres of plastic tubes and 4000 cable binders. Intentionally, the sculpture COrtex is not to be seen as a brigde since it is overriding the formal boudaries of both existing bridge and stable volume. As a cocoon and vortex, the organic net is weaving the in-between space into an own structure, the delicate structure becomes a volume, a place to stay. The anorganic material generates a contrast to existing materials and surfaces. In the years to come, the sculpture can grow over and transform the adjacent buildings. In the evening, both exterior and interior space of the sculpture will be converted via animated procetions into an object of space and light.
