ENCLOSURES   The project is based on paintings by John Hejduk, his last works as part of the book  Sanctuaries . The works appear as pictorial sections where different mythological events are taking place. These sections have been translated into a spatial 1: 1 realization, Enclosure, built with wood and tarpaulin. How can these everyday building materials be translated into something of sublime architectural value?  The four incisions are to be considered symbolic in four different concepts;   Bell, Sun, Earth  and  Ground . Four concepts that we can understand, and thus may be a driving force to create an architectural vocabulary that can represent the mythological stories depicted.   Bell  defines a sound which spreads, and thereby gathers us.   Sun  which is above us all.   Earth  is where we all live, and  Ground , the weight of what we belong to - and where we all are due.  The bags are filled with  “Ground”  but are emptied slowly but surely when they meet with the  Sun . In between occurs  Earth , where humans can live between light and gravity. Light,   Sun , coming from above down to the enclosed space as a bell hanging over us connecting the four concepts. Man can grasp the rope which fills the room with sound and makes us aware of the action taking place.
