The Art of Remixing Space

Courtesy of dornob.com, this article is a great look at the redesign of old spaces, and the installation of Krijn de Kooning.
Walls, as we know them, define interior spaces. Most walls create unique spaces. These walls, however, disrupt, permeate, infiltrate and invade them. They challenge ideas of architecture, interior, exterior and place - these additions interfere, obscure, distract and contradict.
The installations of Krijn de Koning are created in all kinds of contexts, from galleries and museums to homes and forests. Some are small scale and seen by few, others are large and placed in highly public spaces.Where he goes, he turns places upside down and inside out.
Using bright colors and simple geometries, this incredible installation artist sets up stark juxtapositions between old and new, permanent and impermanent, functional and artistic. Whether you call it art, architecture or interior design his works are worth experiencing.
