The water pavilion for KUNSTEN Museum of Modern Art in Aalborg is created for this specific place and influenced by the context of the area, its ambience, architecture and audience. Placed in the museum park the water pavilion invites visitors stepping out of the building to make use of the work, either as a space for seclusion and relaxation or the opposite, a place of pure joy and playfulness. Additionally, the pavilion will be visible from inside as well when looking out of the huge windows from above into the park. Thus, a further reference between museum and park is established.
The artwork is a programmed water pavilion made out of water walls shooting up from jets in the ground. These water walls randomly rise and fall, defining different configurations of the space in sequences of ten seconds before changing shape and appearance. The visitor is allowed to move within the structure, finding himself in differently shaped spaces inside, or suddenly on the outside, of the pavilion without any possibility to control or govern the confinement/exclusion.
