Geometry, scale and perspective are essential to the work of Tommy Støckel. His fascination with modernism and science fiction novels from both the 19th and 20th centuries are reflected in his installations. Questions such as what would modernist architecture of the 20s/30s/40s have looked like if they had today's technology? are central to his practice, looking to obtain a science fiction writer's aspiration to speculate on possible futures as well as imagining alternative courses for things to have taken (and may go on to be). Støckel has developed a new project for Arnolfini that further develops his approach to possible envisionings of the future and the role of architecture within it. The new project sees a more personal implication for the artist as it looks at his career trajectory to date, and in an act of speculation, imagines what kind of work he might make at a further point in the future.
