Rope | Access |

With the use of Rope Access techniques, the most exclusive part of vacancy becomes accessible.¬†An exploration of the forgotten space by using the vertical axis provided an unique penthouse perspective. High above a staggering amount of cubic meters of dusty air hides an oasis of light and calmness. There, right under the soft white skylights of the Van Gendthallen, grows a temporary luxury. Kilometres of used climbing ropes became ‘airy’ floors. A place for those who prefer ‘an overview’.

A project by Celine de Waal Malefijt, as part of the master Vacant NL (Sandberg Institute).
