And Back Again (the Well)
Tussen–ruimte (between–space) opens alleys, hidden courtyards and other unused spaces in the Amsterdam canal area, in collaboration with artists and architects.
And Back Again (the Well) was made for the hidden garden behind the Krijtberg church in Amsterdam. Being in a narrow space with high walls surrounding you, you tend to look up, as if you’re instinctively searching for that free space. Like an echo back I wanted to bring down the sky.
The Well is tornado shaped which gives the illusion of a dept that goes on further than the eye can see. A blank surface of water reflects the sky and brings the intangible closer; a recurring attempt in religion and places of worship.
