Net Rovinj
Hotel Amarin 2016 Rovinj, Croatia

The installation, nesting in the spacious niche within the lobby of Amarin hotel in Rovinj, is a hybrid of Net and Tuft concepts. A deep blue carpet, covering the floors and walls of the cubicle, blends with the transparent ultramarine-coloured nets which traverse the reclusive area while climbing two levels up. The person inside the installation floats between the lobby and the glass facade, catching glimpses of the sea, sky and greenery outside. For the first time the installation is permanent and functions as a continual heterotopia within the hotel space. The all-enveloping thick carpet creates an sound-absorbant environment akin to an effect of the anechoic chamber.
