Your spiral view is an approximately eight-metre-long tunnel constructed from steel plates that are assembled into two sets of spirals coiling in opposite directions. Inside the work, visitors find themselves within a kaleidoscope, in which the space they have just left is reflected fragmentarily together with the view out the other side. The reflections enhance the dizzying sense of movement created by the jagged walls. At the Palacio de Cristal in Madrid, the tunnel was approached across a field of lava, while at Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, it functioned as the entrance to the museum, staging the transition from the world outside.
