The project is based on my research on the figurative “black hole”. This research was conducted based on my personal fear of what would happen after graduation; the pressure I felt to fill in the tabula rasa that was my future. The aim of my research was to develop a strategy that would prevent getting sucked into the black hole.

TOT HIER EN VERDER is a black seating element that people can sit on and discuss the concept of ‘the black hole’. The more people join in, the quicker the black colour will disappear, due to their body temperatures. This symbolises the idea that the black hole does not exist, as by discussing your fears with others you can prevent getting sucked into the black hole. It is a meeting point. In a day and age where we force ourselves to do anything and everything, it’s better to meet other people, not meet your own demands.
