This piece was made originally at Base Camp 2011, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Tou Scene, Stavanger (NO). (See here) Afterwards it participated in the exhibition "Go ahead... touch me" at Manifest Gallery (USA), Vestlandsutstilling 2012 and in 2013 the piece was reformulated and commissioned by the Norwegian Tax Authorities (Skattedirektorat).

About the piece:
Transformable Wall Object I is a site-specific project inspired by Tou Scene's palette of colors. The work is composed by 348 squares painted on plywood with 75 acrylic colors which are organized into 29 columns an 12 rows. The project explores the centrality of the viewer expressed philosophically in Merleau-Ponty's ideas about perception - during the exhibition the observer was invited to change the composition of the work.
