An unexpected yet welcome discovery made whist experimenting with metal mesh and water was the material’s ability to hold the liquid within itself. As water washes over the finer grades of mesh, droplets are temporarily captured, before slowly filtering downward under gravity. The effect is rather mesmerising, an abstract, pixelated, almost digital cascade of luminous squares provide animation. In reality a mesh facade sitting into sea water would be continuously lapped by incoming waves, creating an evolving, moving facade.

The facade mediates between the outer and the inner, allowing inhabitants a stirring taste of Reykjavik’s unique climate on occasion…
Sharp cold winds rattle through a primitive enclosure.
Thin shards of ice glide beneath a suspended timber deck.
Low winter light bounces off gently-rippling water.
Hazy rays from a cool sunset trickle through a perforated skin.
