4.4 (unit III.-VI.)

4.4 (unit III.-VI.) are constellations of concrete squares, which are directly poured onto the ground.The casting of four plates is done in order to quarter them by force. The proportion and placement of the squares are based on the site plan, which is inserted into the coordinates of a certain site. The means of the site plan is to visualize cubical diffusion, by creating fields of expanding squares in a doubling sequence, and has the function to find points (centers) from which the sequence is measured. Ideally, this creates an interplay between subjective preference, reaction to a specific site and methodological calculation of placement, scale and proportion. The method of this piece is interlocking the measurements of the sequence with the physical autonomy of the concrete pieces. For Undir berum Himni I selected the coordinate point N65°, W19° as the starting point to draw the sequences of expanding squares. This caused me to calculate 8 points measuring across the country, before I found a "center" in Reykjavik from which I could measure the 4 coordinates, where the sculptures are now placed.
