Solid Poetry by Frederik Molenschot & Susanne Happle

Whenever the weather change the landscape transforms, the light becomes different and the whole atmosphere changes. All materials seem to alter. In my project I explore the possibilities for hidden design appearing as the environment changes. I applied techniques to enduring and solid materials as glass and concrete, so that natural processes like differences in temperature causing condense reveal patterns on windows. Rain uncovers decoration on a city square. The possible applications of solid poetry are various: either at home in the bathroom, in the garden, in saunas and dance clubs, where the humidity is high or public spaces like bus stops or pavements. All forms of solid poetry have in common that they change the whole setting; they are surprising and have a life of their own.

    I had this idea but in some other ways, playing with temperature, light etc, with appearing decorations or changing colors, but it stayed just in my head and I was looking for technical solutions, in part you made it, damned!!!

  • Teensy says:

    This is a beautiful idea, especially for city sidewalks or plazas. It might actually make me HOPE for rain instead of dreading it!
