Originaire

Venice China Pavilion 2012










Mobius strip by biad-ufo

“Originaire” is a word created to combine the meanings of “original” and “initial”. In the Chinese language, the character for “source” is specifically in the context of the water source. As such, we invoke the idea of “originaire” to seek the origin of memory and a mental image of the original world.

Five architects, artists, and designers were asked to create five installations from different perspectives to represent different interpretations of the meaning of “originaire”.

Shao Weiping (BIAD Ufo)’s Sequence uses slices to create a linear representation of a Möbius strip.
