Year — 2014
Originally commissioned by dOCUMENTA (13), Transition 2012 is a large public sculpture permanently installed alongside the N34 highway in Drenthe, the Netherlands. The work borrows its title from a cinema term, indicating a technique of film editing by which scenes or shots are combined. In general, transitions are used to express tone or mood, suggest the passage of time, juxtapose two or more scenes, or separate parts of the narrative. Passing through this tunnel sculpture also proposes a theatrical act, where one either leaves from or appears on stage. Transition 2012 evokes a sense of suspense and a possibly a promise, like the moment when we close our eyes to make a wish, hoping, and at times even expecting, things to change, or our imaginings to become real and that, against all odds, reality has been magically altered.
