Schloss Hollenegg for Design, mischer'traxler studio
You just had to stop and stare! A pendulum swings over a multi-layered turning tabletop. We, the visitors, stop, are interested, listen to the scratchiness of the grinding, crude mechanism. With every swing, the pendulum grinds deeper into the board, gradually revealing one by one the layers of the composite board consisting of color pigments, sawdust, and paper.
A continuous, meditative process, in the end yielding a table-basin-hybrid. The work ISOCHRONE on the theme of “Slow” – created on invitation of Schloss Hollenegg – is an attempt to fix time and continuity in process and object – and leaves us completely spellbound. A truly fascinating installation of the festival evergreen and Swarovski Design Medal winner mischer'traxler studio.
