WITH MILK: FIND SOMETHING EVERYBODY CAN USE
INTERVENTION IN THE MIES VAN DER ROHE PAVILION
“I approach Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion as a ready-made, the activities it experienced and the way it’s been seen. The building is not static; in fact, my intervention explores the metabolism of a living machine. Liquid is replaced because it is a part of the building that has always been replaced. In fact, the content of the two pools is replaced all the time, unnoticed to visitors. A pump re-circulates water in the large outdoor pool, while the smaller pool is drained every two weeks, the dark glass at the bottom is cleaned and the pool refilled.
