The view through the windows of the pavilion is blocked, mainly with ‘building materials’ from the city under construction. Words painted on the higher windows throw legible shadows. A painter’s box with (fired) imprints in clay of the senses, tiny paintings made up of meaningful colours and forms, an atlas, and a variety of maps from different cultures all serve to create a context for a ‘sound map’. If one walks on the white boards on the ground, sounds emerge from the speakers mounted on the wall in a corresponding grid. The sounds represent past, present and future expectations for +the New Land (land reclaimed from the sea, 30 years ago).
