Do we dream under the same sky

A project by Nikolaus Hirsch, Michel Müller and Rirkrit Tiravanija

The project DO WE DREAM UNDER THE SAME SKY has been developed by the architects Nikolaus Hirsch / Michel Müller and artist Rirkrit Tiravanija. This work can be seen as a disembodied extension of the upcoming artist residency at The Land, a self-sustaining artistic community initiated by Rirkrit Tiravanija and Kamin Lertchaiprasert near Chiang Mai in Thailand that proposes an artistic utopia, presenting an ecological and sustainable model for future practice.

The first component of this sequential building process, a structural system consisting of a bamboo-steel roof and flexible columns, was realized on the occasion of Art Basel in 2015, the second element, a hanging façade structure was constructed for the Garden Triennale in Aarhus (Denmark, 2017).

The third building component, integrating at once both a protective façade material and an energy producing device, was developed for the Biennale in Seoul and will now be shown for the first time in Europe: a textile façade that produces electricity and emits light, using advanced organic photovoltaics (OPV) and organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology. The shingle-like system includes 1250 OPV and 403 OLED modules (each 155 x 175 mm), suspended from a grid of bamboo tubes. The energy is produced during the day and emitted during night, highlighting the sentence “Do We Dream Under The Same Sky”. The title refers not only to the commons of energy but also to the possibility of a universal discourse in the context of rising national, social, religious and economic particularisms around the globe.
