The Aesthetics of agricultural landscape in the urban context of the former "Ruhrgebeit" aims to create its new image as the "Metropolis Ruhr". Our research underlies topics of simplicity and sustainability, the combination of beauty and utility. The interventions we conceived are meant as an accompaniment of the spectator to explore certain questions and to pique someone’s curiosity.
On the threshold between "understanding – non-understanding" the perception of the surrounding enhance."Venustas et Utilitas" consists of several seasonal phases, that develop over a period of two years. A kind of crescendo, that interacts with the agrarian calendar. At the beginning precise color-lines cross or frame the grain fields. Afterwards the lines turn into color-bands. For the final image during the last phase the colors will shade into each other over the fields. A rather subtle image that requires an attentive and trained eye: the art of perception.
