Carbon by Bert Villa

“Carbon: Adaption and Evolution

As a chameleon adapts to its surroundings, Carbon moves between different surroundings and adapts. The beacon of warmth and civilisation was relocated from a rural landscape (Kunstenfestival PLAN B, Bekegem) to a residential city landscape (Gouvernement, Ghent), and now to an industrial city landscape (019, Ghent). While adapting its structural integrity to these surroundings, these surroundings also react and evolve with this new element. New spatial compositions are being made in-between steel cables and the large vertical exhaust.
New social gatherings are once again being made around fire.”
