90° - 8,4° Public Art Installation by "realities:united - studio for art and architecture" please credit the pictures as: (c) 2020 Relja Ivanić, by courtesy of realities:united In their hybrid and mostly large-scale installations, Jan Edler and Tim Edler regularly deal with the expansion and transformation of the built environment, focusing on its reception by people. Hence, the installation 90° - 8,4° for the entrance area of the German Embassy in Belgrade was conceived from the perspective of the users: depending on their location, four interrelated coloured mirrors create fleeting visual relationships between the foyer and the first floor, thus ‘activating’ new aspects of the space. Two parallel round mirrors on floor and ceiling of the foyer confront two square mirrors on opposite walls next to the entrance and on the upper floor. A key aspect is the angular relationship of the mirrors: while the two round objects are aligned horizontally, their square counterparts are mounted at a slight angle. The two imaginary spaces that span between the mirrors cross each other with a deviation from the right angle of 8.4 degrees, hence the title. The ensemble bridges the height difference between the two floors and creates an ephemeral virtual space that can be experienced in its specific form when at least one person is present between the mirror surfaces; the more people present, the more diverse the depicted space becomes. Depending on the time of day and the incidence of light, the perception of the characteristic bright and cheerful colour spectrum of the mirrors changes. It forms a complement to the white building (a reference to the “white” city of Belgrade). As in a kaleidoscope, surfaces, shapes and colours break up and enter into new constellations with each movement.
