Inside -- Out is a spatial intervention based on a series of weather responsive installations entitled Virtual Holes and Virtual Mirrors, which Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec has been developing since 2006. The series investigates the relationship between weather conditions and the built architecture in an urban environment. Each work addresses a single weather element of the immediate surroundings of a building in relation to its interior.
In the installations Virtual Hole -- Rain (2006), Virtual Hole -- Wind 1:1 (2011) and Virtual Hole -- Sun 1:1 (2011), weather phenomena such as rain, wind, and sunlight are detected through digital sensors and are recreated within the exhibition space through transformations of the received data. Every time a raindrop falls, the sun shines or the wind blows against the roof sensors, a water droplet, a ray of light or a gust of winds is being synthesized indoors correspondingly. I call this process "undoing architecture".
The exhibited work Inside -- Out is an integration of the three previous installations into a single intervention, creating a setting where external rain, wind and sunlight are simultaneously synthesized indoors, establishing a tactile presence of weather inside.
