Possible Patterns is a spatial intervention by artist Elise Eeraerts (BE) in collaboration with Grond Studio. It is comprised of modular elements. They make up a large volume that emerges as a fragment of built space. The modular elements that the intervention consists of are made of rammed earth.There are 5 different shapes that function intermodularly as a group. Among these, some establish a scaled up/down version of themselves. Possible Patterns originates from research into the standardization and customization of shapes, geometry and composition. Through the work’s modularity a multitude of configurations could be (re)built. Within these modular units an additional experiment is materialized through the creation of openings in the middle. These openings have a visual impact, constituting small windows to look through ‘Possible Patterns’ from different sides. Yet they also bring forward fragility in terms of the material stability of rammed earth. Usually, mud bricks do not contain openings within their own volume. Pushing their distinctive balance to its limit, challenges and activates the senses and experience of the viewer.
