MARCO SALVATERRA & MILOS STOJANOVIC – 2012

‘Like Wood Mobiles’ is a dwelling for two individuals suspended between two trees, an intimate and reflective shelter, enduring but still shifting with the movements of the atmosphere, and finding inspiration in the kinetic art of Alexander Calder. The principles of movement and balance that emerged in the art of the American sculptor with his ‘mobiles’ are given new shape in the How we dwell (make your own residence) artefact, which transfers them to the landscape, giving them not merely an aesthetic but also a habitative function.

The project is developed around the concept of artistic residence, of occupancy for the purposes of executing an artefact. The three artists, who live within the work as they build it, make this moment the heart of their activity, in which the process of living and working on the various stages of execution of the piece become an integral part of it.
