Overview

21C MUSEUM HOTELS Materials: Optic fiber, paper yarn, size each weaving: 1,6 x 16 meter
In the centre of the new 21C Museum Hotel in Cincinnati 3 large scale weavings are placed in a light well. The total installation is like a breath of light throughout the entire building, and a sensitive change of light in the artwork offers a meditative calming point of wonder to the space.
21c Museum Hotel Cincinnati is a 156-room boutique hotel, contemporary art museum and cultural civic center located in the center of the action in downtown Cincinnati.

Goals

Krogh’s starting point is often her assessment of the natural light illuminating the space she’ll
work in, which she examines to gauge its intensity, color spectrum and the shadows that form as it moves. Krogh balances these factors against the practicalities outlined in the project brief, then brings them together to charge the space with energy and emotion, which makes the architecture
come alive.
