Fields of (inter)action at the Venice Architecture Biennale

From September the 14th till November the 23rd Jeanne van Heeswijk and Dennis Kaspori will present an updated version of their work 'Fields of (inter)action, models for collective change' (2007) at the 11th Venice Architecture Biennale. The 2008 biennale is curated by Aaron Betsky and their work is being displayed as part of the exhibition 'Experimental Architecture' in the Padiglione Italia at Giardini. 'Fields of (inter)action' is a live size pop-up book that gives insight in 5 of their projects. The projects Will o the whisp, Face Your World, Care-Taker, De Strip and The Blue House are presented next to each other in order to give insight in the aims, methodologies and working methods of Van Heeswijk and Kaspori. The work's playful and interactive design stimulates visitors of the exhibition to explore the projects by pulling handles and opening windows in order to change the scenario.
