1:1 CONNECT   TRIENNALE BRUGGE 2015   Market Square

DiamondScope and Belfry

DiamondScope stands on the Market Square in Bruges. It’s octagonal structure and shell of mirror glass addresses the Belfry watchtower while mirroring, fragmenting, and multiplying the medieval architecture and the people on the square. Inside, there is a secluded, intimate space where visitors and residents of Bruges can meet. Through the diamond shaped spy glass they can secretly observe the people outside without being seen.
DiamondScope confronts the power of the gaze and the shared use of public space. The intervention frames and questions visual consumption and offers the public a possibility to reflect on their point of view.
