By this we mean spaces that can be inhabited by humans or animals and that serve only a temporary purpose, namely the protection of the brood or from the rigours of the weather. A simple roof made of twigs, mosses and leaves can be helpful to avoid getting wet. However, it is not suitable in the long run. Temporary purpose is therefore a characteristic of a housing.
Probably only by the degree of randomness, or what role nature plays in the process of creation. One simply “knows” how a house should look, with mostly straight walls, windows and a roof. A housing can look very different, and “nature” gives both the people of a certain culture and the most diverse animal species in a certain environment (imprint) clear ideas of form with regard to the idea and the material.
We found the theme of ” housings” in nature, especially in birds, but also in plants, which designed their “house” in different ways, often even finding together in a kind of symbiosis, thus fulfilling the purpose.
Silke Wilhelm: My text on the blackberry tunnel
Inspired by the climbing, all-covering movements of the blackberry, a dynamic structure has been created that is intended to make the viewer think.
Was it made by coincidence? Is it man-made?
Furthermore, it is important to me that nature takes it back without leaving any residue.
