PROPOSAL FOR FINTECH
Copenhagen. june-juli 2017
The idea was to make compositions out from pictures taken in the near surroundings, while they users of the space work so much in virtual realities, and allso keep the transperancy that is a tema for the space and in the architecture. The works should be propotioned to the rooms. The picture’s shown here are scaled 200x300cm, and printet on metal.
The idea can be “re-written” and integrated in a new space.

WALL DECORATION AALBORG SHIPYARD
The decoration in the building belonging to Gasværksvej A/S extends over five floors. It contains a history that takes us back to the time when the building functioned as the administration building of the old Aalborg Shipyard. The underlying idea was to have the history incorporated in the building so that it presents itself as a physical embodiment of the life that unfolded in the era of Aalborg Shipyard.
The decoration is a transparent layer-on-layer work containing pictures of ship launchings with visits from King Frederik, Queen Ingrid, pictures of cranes, ships, workers, draughtsmen, launch celebrations, changing rooms and the administration building itself.
Right at the bottom we see some of the workers who were involved in the shipyard’s production. At ground level we see ship designers at work in the drawing office. In one of the picture layers a great crane figures as a through-going symbol from the ground floor to the third floor. The crane reaches right up to the top floor, where a sign painter is standing on a ladder painting the name of the shipyard.
All in all the work constitutes a transparent X-ray column depicting life at the shipyard – from the first photographs of the first ships up to photographs of the shipyard shortly before it close.
