This excercise explores different experiences of depth from the inside and the outside of a mass.
The exterior of the mass is a sculpted, irregular form, while the main void is a geometrically regular shape, but strongly distorted by deep openings.
To achieve different impressions of depth the connections from outside to inside vary in their articlation, the type depends on the curvature of the outer surface.
On the concave areas the object folds onto itself to create smaller voids between exterior and interior, while on the convex areas straight cylindrical cuts create only a visual connection. The thinner the mass, the smaller and denser the cuts become.
The ground is invading the space through a major opening at the bottom, it creates a
raised platform in the main void.
The effect is that from the inside the varying thickness of the poche is readable, while on the outside the surface curvature is emphasized and the interior voids can partially be seen from certain standpoints.
