BEYOND THE VISUAL–TOWARDS FLUID VIRTUAL SPATIOTEMPORAL ENVIRONMENTS

13.-20.10.2018 – Workshop at OSSA Łódź (PL) with architect and space theorist Constantinos Miltiadis.


The workshop explored architectural sensibilities beyond the visual that the event title VISION suggested. Starting from acoustic field experiments, participants have been called to analyse the emergent sonic dimension of the built environment. Developing an awareness of the essential role that sound plays in our perception and cognition of space, participants experimented with an architectural composition that used sound objects as building material. Contrary to the conceptual sphere of architecture which excludes such phenomena, we proposed an approach intended to deepen the understanding of the non-visual aesthetics embedded in architecture. Introducing readings from various disciplines and working with both temporal and spatial digital media, the workshop fostered to experiment with the spatiotemporal production of our lived environments and eventually develop such prototypes in the virtual reality medium.
