TWELVE LEVEL BENCH

Maider López

Details

Covered in randomly selected colored tiles, this bench appears to have emerged straight from the ground at different heights. The differences in height allow the bench to be used as a table for a variety of uses like reading the newspaper or as a place to meet up with friends. The role of the artwork is transformed by the user, who creates a new space depending on how they use it. TWELVE LEVEL BENCH has an effect on the people who use it and the space where it is situated, transforming the entire space into art. It is an example of how we can experience the unseen power of art.
