the art concept KleyCity

 

KleyCity aims to connect cultural and historical ideas and aspects of different countries worldwide. The project consists of an expanding collection of tower shaped sculptures, so far erected in 24 countries. I chose the shape of a tower as an universal icon, that is understood by any society and race. Following extensive studies on past and present development of local land and people, each tower is shaped to reflect a particular part in the evolution of urban civilisation. It is my ambition to invite you into KleyCity as a global network of towers conserving the dreams and ideas of ancient and modern society, no matter where in the world. Everybody is welcome.
