INTEGRATION THROUGH FLUENCY
The Lloyds Hotel stands as an architectural statue in its surroundings, solid and isolated. At the same time it is culturally, economicatlly and socially integrated with the environment. The flow of people passing by and through the Lloyd Hotel, the connection between the outside and inside are the starting point to study the flow as the merging element of two worlds: the Lloyd hotel and its surroundings.
The flow is registered with observational drawings from two different perspectives, outside and inside. The movements of people passing by and through (visitors, employees, neighbors) are captured during 12 intervals of 20 minutes, during day and night over 6 weeks. This then becomes a set of drawings with a certain language forming a unique choreograph, specific for that moment in the Lloyd area. The lines and dots visualize the rhythm, the intensity of the movements coming through the Lloyd statue, as if the whole forms a partition of the movements. After overlaying the different drawings and analyzing the flow, multiple areas of high density emerge. A revealing and beautiful process.
INTERVENTION: PROVOKING NEW AWARENESS BY PARTICIPATING
Inviting the Lloyds public to participate by sketching their own flow 1:1, in real scale provoked new awareness throughout their movements. On 13 dec 2010, a flow performance was held, visualized by traces and lines of wool, from bunches of wool carried along by the participants.
ONE TO ONE FLOW SKETCH
Together a unique choreograph, specific to that moment, is created. The whole of traces forms an extract of the flow, showing the merging movements of the inside and outside, and the intensity of used space into the void. The articulations of the flow create a unique setting in space: they fluently appear, revealed by the Lloyd public itself.
Be aware of your unique movements, how fluent is it? What is your flow about, does it flow freely? Follow your rhythm, resonate, enjoy it!
