“SPHINX”
The zoomorhic mythological fgure sphinx is interpreted
differently due to cultural traditions. In Buddhist tradition it
functions as a guardian of the northern direction.
From a repetition of the square in the frst “light walls” from
1986 onwards, the walls adopted a different character from
1994. They became an ornamentation within the wall. The
paper squares were divided into paper triangles within the
specifc wall.
The wall “Sphinx” is a tactile division, that changes
constantly with the shifting character of the light to which it is
exposed.
The paper is made with coloured eastern fbers.
