Heated Benches
Belfast, NI

[2022]


An object
to address a fundamental
principle of architecture

An object
radiating heat
within an room
to ease its inhabitation

More accurately,

eight types of objects
forming one object
an assembly of objects
radiating heat
to address a fundamental
principle of architecture

An object
to appease the body
taking strain from legs
warming backs of thighs

Or rather,

Two objects
or two assemblies of objects
to appease the body:
a public gesture
at ground floor
and one of care
above

both radiating heat
to address a fundamental
principle of architecture.
