Differing from usual exhibitions, the works are presented not in a vertical level but rather a horizontal one. With the change of the height of the installation the bedding angle of each element changes to the optimum of examination, as if reading a book.
As the exhibition is a travelling one it was evident for the material used to be light, easily put together in a wide range of variations (as all exhibition spaces differ), and for the exhibited works to be part of the installation itself.
In the sense of architecture our aim was to create surprisingly different exhibition spaces using only a few simple elements, which put together create a whole any way set up, and to serve demands of the 21st century, e.g. recycling, using cardboard as raw material.
