Dutch contemporary artist Marleen Sleeuwits, known for her photography, objects and installations, challenges the imagination
in her new artist book, On the So! Edge of Space. In her visual experiment, the artist presents a four-tiered representation of
space: her own photographs of 'in-between' spaces are placed in a scale model, which she then photographs and arranges in the
space of a book. "e elegantly designed hardcover publication, covering seven years of work and with 200 full-bleed images,
creates a maze-like, immersive experience for the viewer. "e bare walls of the model offer no context so the viewer feels projected
into a timeless vacuum. As we leaf through these rooms, we wonder: when will these spaces come to life and who will lead the way
the room or the user? Sleeuwits touches upon questions of how spatial qualities alter the viewer s perception viscerally. Essay by
Basje Boer, Edo Dijksterhuis and Freek Lomme.
