Ludmila Rodrigues (NL/BR): The Grotto

Ludmila Rodrigues: The Grotto

The Grotto is a chamber designed to challenge the visitor’s sense of balance by deliberately tweaking basic spatial references that usually guide us through space. By entering this room one will begin to navigate by touch, rather by sight, becoming increasingly conscious of the qualities of the space that are informed through the skin – notably hands and feet.
Ludmila Rodrigues has a background in architecture and is fascinated by movement perception and embodied intelligence with a focus on the tactile sense. Her ideas are materialized in spaces, situations and devices to engage the audience in playful, sensory experiences. In doing so, visitors become actors of these spontaneous explorations.
