Daniel Robert Hunziker was born 1965 in Walenstadt, Switzerland. He has a special relationship to space, and space-relevant architectural practices are an integral part of his work. He integrates architecture into his work, which in turn incorporates the work within a specific location. Hunziker uses spatial stagings and constructions to make visible fractions of reality and project them outwards. His choice of materials is never random, nor the way in which he assembles them. Mixing nature and technical know-how, his works are not on a standard scale; in fact they often manipulate different scales and combine models with life-size structures, thereby allowing the viewer to take a fresh new look at his own perception of space and at the norms society imposes upon him. Daniel Robert Hunziker plays with space when he presents these monumental rotating geodesic forms, whose configurations redefine their environment. An encounter between the infinitely large and the infinitesimal, so to speak.
