The title of the artwork “Rear Window” is inspired by Alfred Hitchcock film dated from 1954 with the same name, which explore the role of the viewer in the creative process, when showing that the spectators are not passive recipients, who merely accumulate images of the film, but engage in an important cognitive and affective activity in the course of attempting to understand the story.
I was very much interested in questioning what does the work of art initiate in its encounter with the viewer?
The project was developed in two months. Curated by Kulturbyrået Mesen for Rom for Kunst, the collaborative process was a great experience for future projects. The curatorial team also worked as producers of the art project, taking me in contact with possible suppliers that could materialize my ideas. It was the first time we had a three-dimensional project on the facade of Oslo Central Station, and it brought as some challenges due Norwegian weather and limitations of the architectural structure, but in the end the result speaks by itself.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
