Scope and content:
Series 3, Olzweg, 2006, relates to a competition proposal conceptualized in 2006 for an extension to the Fond Régional d’Art Contemporain (FRAC) in Orléans, France. The records contain images of plans, elevations, sections, and renderings of the project and the robot. There are also pictures of the model and an animated rendering of different 3D model views.

The FRAC competition sought an emblematic extension that would complement the original 18th century building hosting the collection. R&Sie(n)’s project earned second place in the competition.

The project takes its name from Holzwege a book from Heidegger inspired by the paths that winds through the forest. It consists of a labyrinth of recycled glass sticks, which appeared to be “glued” to the existing building and courtyard. The glass comes from recycled bottles provided by the neighborhood inhabitants. R&Sie(n) sees this as a form of criticism of France’s relation to wine consumption through its materialization. The labyrinth is progressively constructed and rearranged by a robotic arm and randomized, interactive software continuously reprogramming its parameters during construction.
