This project emerged from my research on the origins of the “Schrebergarten” and the unconventional practices of Mr. Schreber. He devised contraptions reminiscent of modern gym equipment and conducted experiments on his children, driven by his belief in the necessity of releasing children’s excessive energy.
Amidst the winter landscape, the installation seamlessly merges with the snow. In this specific site and context, the original purpose of the equipment transcends into a realm of absurdity, accentuating its transformative nature.
