Transition – AVPD

Copenhagen, 2013

Transition is an interactive installation, created by contemporary art agency AVPD, which explores the perception of space. It consists of four thin, translucent black Trevira CS curtains suspended from the ceiling, which move back and forth on curved runners, creating dynamic dividers.

The installation, originally shown at the Kvadrat’s Copenhagen showroom, comes to life when someone nearby triggers a sensor through movement. This causes the curtains to begin sliding along the runners and creating partitions within the space. Intriguingly, this forces spectators to yield to the curtains delicate yet forceful presence, while also considering their own movement.
