A decision of exemplary status was made concerning the commissioning of art projects for public space in Lower Austria in 1991. For the first time, an attempt was made to award artists commissions for specific concepts in categories of interior design usually associated with aesthetic issues but seldom with artistic ones.

'Farbe 1' (Colour 1) shows the viewer's experience in the space, in a reflecting structure. Only through this wall design does it become clear that one is moving within a cube, the characteristics of which are only generated by the substance paint. The artist's work is not only to design but also to throw light on one's own conscious mind – basic research on experience, so to speak.
