Jeppe Hein, Changing Space, 2003
The work Changing Space is quite simple. The observer will step into an empty room, which is an exact copy of the white cube, the conventional exhibition room of the Museum. Depending on how long one remains there and how attentive one is, one realises that what is happening, and this is indicated by the title of the work, is that one of the four walls is slowly and undemonstratively moving. The room is becoming smaller or larger, depending on what part of the sequence one enters the room in.
Sculpture, architecture and installation
In this way the room is both exhibition room, the idea of an exhibition room, and a construction of an exhibition room. The work is sculpture, architecture and installation. The conclusion is also quite simple: even minute alterations in the world around us influence our role and the place we have in the world.
