Underneath one of Copenhagen’s very busiest roads, runs an underground tunnel linking up the National Hospital and The Faculty of Health Sciences, at the University of Copenhagen. The three dimensional surface consists of upright steel pipes placed in a gridsystem. The overall effect makes it look as if the system oscillates between the open and the enclosed – between stringent, well-ordered lines and impenetrable chaos – as you pass it by. Depending on position and speed of movement, different colours will appear, dissolve, and coalesce to form new parts and wholes.
