For the exhibition “trespassing - shaping spatial practices” we started with a sphere, as a geometrical volume with no defined top or bottom. 10 areas of the sphere's surface were marked out to represent the 10 interviews and became the target for a generative process to deform the sphere. The resulting deformed sphere – with its characteristic "sucked-in" holes was named “Olie”. The final shape was milled from foam and coated with Polyurethane.

In the exhibition the audiolounge was first noticed as a murmuring object. Getting closer made you distinguish different soundtracks emitting from the holes. Once you leaned into a hole, the visual contact to your surroundings was blocked out and replaced by the surrounding sound of the interview.
