O. T. (the dark side of)

O.T. (the dark side of) is a minimal, process-oriented intervention in a piece of meadow on the grounds of Symposium Lindabrunn. For two months, an area of about 20m2 is shaded on this piece of meadow. The construction of the shading resembles a solar plant consisting of 9 panels. Shortly before the opening of the exhibition, the construction will be removed. Nature should have changed underneath the panels during this time so far, that a color change shows up and the shadow of the panels has inscribed itself into the meadow.
