Tengeri was an site specific installation built for the Vallery of Arts festival in Csórompuszta, Hungary and organised by Budapest based design studio Hello Wood. The week long design and build workshop featured a range of different installations all built from wood and set around the beautiful landscape of an old farm house.
The result was a long walkway which began in the meadow at ground and then gradually raised up to the height of the maize, giving the visitor the experience of floating above the huge field below.
The inspiration behind Tengeri began with a series of playful discussions and experiments within the landscape, with particular focus on the boundary between the tall field of dense maize which created an abrupt wall along the flat meadow edge of the farm.
The walkway was constructed from 50mm x 50mm timber posts that were interlocked in a cross with a simple bolt, with the centre of the cross providing support for a narrow platform as it raised up. The installation was enjoyed by hundreds of people over the weekend and stayed on the site for the rest of the year.
