New plans are being worked on, coming up later…
only floor and mirror width remain to define space
… illustration/examination of how one single component (truss/column) in the miesian open plan is immediately aestheticised…
… quite like the fact that it on my cutting board, otherwise it looks quite boring with white bg.
not quite finished; the development of weavers work in england
Trying to record motion of the exploded room surfaces… unfortunately the pieces appear quite shaky in the clip, which is bad for the tracking of the footage i wanna apply onto it…
1.The Uncanny Interior
.. domestic space, as we know it, has become disassociated from its designated functions through the continuing revolution of media and communication technologies…
We are now inhabiting the ruins of our former dwellings, houses and homes, which have turned into the uncanny hybrids of both: virtual and physical micro-factories and – at the same time – the spaces of retreat from them…… as visual and sensual experiences have become de-materialized and independent from scale and place, the project argues for an obsolete depature (discession) from the categories of domestic and private, towards…
… The Typology Series by Bernd and Hilla Becher has braoched the issue of failed or outdated infrastructure and industry as a ground for architectural speculation and eventually their (re-)appropriation…
By describing and documenting the disused sites of german industrial production in the Ruhr Valley as ‘Anonymous Sculptures’, they (re-)classified them as monuments and spaces of collective memory, which would no longer be defined by use but their sensual perception of form and time.
They contrast this by setting up their method as a repetitive practice of mass-production, inverting the expectancy of the latter and production of the artist.
3.Overlay Virtual and Physical Realities
This shall now be the case for my room, which I will refer to as “Common…?”
Its the place I work,
the subject of my work,
the result of my work.
4.Macro & Micro-Factory
… home has become an integral part of the globalised production circle, and has therefore exeeded the modernist notion of being merely product (‘mashine for living’)…
– It is subject to advertisement as well as its receiver and projection surface.
– It is communication terminal and receiver of algorithsm-distorted information.
– It is subject to supervision and surveillance the (apparent) place of retreat from it.
5. …from now on, all hybridisations are possible…
Video (1) please click on the link!
After countless unsuccessful factory backgrounds, I decided to build one… this is going to enable me to show more and advanced scenes inside the factory.
please click on both links. Sorry about the late post but it took like an hour of trying different render settings to get the size small enough to upload…
… getting better at after effects. the right image is a still from a new scene. also working on a scene with only white and the rooms objects…
Typology series of DIP 9 homes… displaying omnipresent labour and connectives in our supposedly secure places of refuge.
I think we have to retake some images so they become more comparable; eg. a similar camera distance to the screen.
Modern(ist) segregation between domestic and production space experiences a gradual abolishment in the knowledge society.
Are we facing a pre-modern domestic renaissance,
in which home and workplace represent the very same subject…
or has the last realm of self-determination been infiltrated by the intangible supervision of new technologies?
The new productive forces
Your individual dataset as a commodity, immaterial content (articles, imagery), digital profiling, AirBNB, video sex cams… scripted reality
… are the new subjects and instruments of labour, that negate both: house and factory as independent spatial entities.
The challenge will be to discover or propose new spatial typologies, that are able to re-define these terms.
