Corn-walk was inspired by the landscape. It is a straight line in the field, which starts from the lightly ascending field towards the cornfield and the ascending sun. The 40 meters long installation is balancing in the corn field where we find ourselves after a short walk, and we can see a wonderful view. The goal of the architects was not only to give a special experience to the ones who walk on the installation, but to create a unique coreaography as well. They used the same 4x4 wooden sticks without using the measure tape. The structure has 440 legs, and the legs are connected in a way to not occupy more space if the whole installation is rolled up, than the original material. It was a great experience for the whole team, because they created a secret path, which has its end in the sea of corn and nobody knows where is the end of it..
