Cold Case

| 2012-01-13

With the meaning of Marcel Duchamp's concept of the objet trouvé, a car headlight was used as a readymade and placed in an architectural context. By repeatedly molding from positive to negative and back, the headlight receives entirely new spatial properties through this forced abstraction. By maintaining its linearity and parallelism, the industrial charm of the Objet trouvé is supported. The outer shell and the interior impress with their rough surface that consists of black-pigmented concrete. The interior is designed with a wooden lining that clings to the concrete's inner walls like a second skin.
