What you can see very well now is how they made the base. They first dug out the floor plan of the church and then panelled it you can see this along the outside. They have filled it with steel, that strengthens the foundation and catches the weight of the church. They poured the concrete in three phases today was the last phase, the actual floor plate it still shines because it is wet. The last step will be the polishing of the floor. They are going to use a polishing machine to smoothen the floor completely. You can feel a volume, a piece of architecture but you can see the in- and outside at the same time. This will be even more tangible when we lit up the church at night from the inside it will make the lines on the inside more prominent than the lines on the outside. The work is called ‘Reading between the lines’. On the one hand this title is chosen because it is important for us that the viewer discovers the meaning in the work itself. Literally reading it between the lines. We don’t want to pinpoint all meanings in a certain way this work is abstract it is a minimalistic work that allows people to make their own interpretation. On the other hand the title refers literally to the look of the sculpture. It is a set of lines that form the shape of a church and also when you read between the lines you see the landscape it is those two that the work is made up of.
