ABOUT THE WORKS OF ART
The two unique photographic works The Passage and The Room Of Reflection have been created in Alexandriahuset in the last part of the building phase. Each work includes many double-exposed photographs on top of each other, which breaks up the architectural room and creates a meditative and undefined room out of something concrete. Kruse Jensen has used the large characteristic window sections of the building for reflections and has focused on creating a sensuous room, in which you do not see architecture with the naked eye but through the photographic eye.
