World premiere of the art installation
„for distance“ on January 5th, 2021
„For Distance – the Covid Geometry“
ensures world-wide health –
A colorful art project to strengthen
the awareness for keeping your distance.
With Covid Geometry, we are entering into a new age. Instead of having to follow dark and strict pandemic restrictions long term, this new art form is supposed to make the rules of keeping one’s distance normal.
Usually art excites, sparks interest, differentiates or is misun-derstood. „For Distance“ with its Covid geometry, on the oth-er hand, stimulates a new social behavior. If distance is main-tained, there will no longer be a race at the supermarket checkout to see who can get to it first, because no one will be pushing their way in.
Thus, the art project „for distance“ is at the service of society and its health. By applying colorful patterns at intervals of 8 meters and fields of 4 square meters, no one can get infected with this distance regulation.
On January 5, 2021, 160 different geometric fields have been sprayed by graffiti artists with food paints on a ski slope measuring 400 x 50 meters, on a snow field of 20,000 square meters on the “Simonhöhe” in Carinthia. In the center of the fields 123 life-size figures have been placed. The whole formed a poet-ic sculpture park and resulted in the largest art installation of the year.
„For Distance®“ is the basis for possible projects in public spaces, on large squares, in stadiums, on parking lots at shopping malls, airports, trade fair halls and the like, where generous distance is to be achieved in a likeable and self-explanatory manner. Artists design the fields and thus an infi-nite number of patterns are created, which span the surfaces like a tapestry.
The world premiere of „For Distance®“ is a greeting full of joy of life, hope and reason to the whole world.
