The re-appropriation of the space gets through the chance to carve out an autonomous, intimate and reduced space of research in which moving. The obstacle to its enjoyment is evocated by the obliqueness of the glass wall, which hangs over those who enter, like a window on the world, on the edge of the fall. It’s a vertical fragility, increased by the horizontality of an irregular wall of cement, whose blocks eat up and nail down to the ground the skeleton of an unstable chair, mutilated and ready to surrender. On the opposite wall, a page from the Astronomisches Skizzenbuch by Hans Hatschek – first heir to the giant Eternit – reveals the human limits by unmasking the failure of point of view. Where the “Tagesbogen” dictates the laws of the solar perspective, the horizon gets irremediably lost in the overlap of two pages – of their lines and words –, generated by the typographical error.
