"Harmony with Diagonals"

Nomination "Small Exhibition Garden" - Heidi Hannus


Harmony with Diagonals

Location: Rozhdestvenka Street, 7

On the map of Moscow the diagonal lines of streets connect and form space-polygons of various shapes and sizes.

This garden is a map metaphor, where the lines of the “streets” lead in certain directions. The project shows the importance of diagonals for the perception of colors and shapes in art. Movement can be visualized in different ways: through skew lines, curves, straight lines. The vertical element means a stop in motion. The combination of the two creates harmony: because a human being needs both movement and peace.
