The second space that was worked on in Antonínská. Two components in the form of a green and violet vertical merged, in the everyday operation, with the office interior, thus becoming almost unnoticeable for the usual visitor despite their total height exceeding 6 meters. This effect was enabled through geometric and volume association to the vertical grid of the layout of the interior architecture. As a consequence, the staff members nicknamed the installation the “cable cover”, which actually pleased us. Within the cycle, we return to using Batesian mimicries deliberately, perceiving them as a parallel to the art possibly entering public space through inconspicuous and symbiotic forms.
