Dewulf’s main investigation starts with ‘What if we build a new electricity plant anno 2020?’ Far away from the idea of a stone-and-masonry monument, it involves a more illusory energy research. During his residency he finishes his preliminary plans for his in-depth research – which unravels rather vertically. He prepares the places where the scissor-lift operations can be held, and even makes a trial run on the square right in front of Kerkbrugge-Langerbrugge’s recently established Buurt’punt. He invites inhabitants for a free panoramic overview of their environment and takes the opportunity to start a conversation. By the end of the year he returns to the neighbourhood. This time to work with the clients of OBRA|BAKEN as part of the ateliers-trajectory. The nature of his research is still the same: maximising all of the social energy and interhuman electricity.
