Surface Treatment

test_13test_9 test_11I have been working on the surfaces of the larger telescape iteriors to express the formal/material argument of surface before I overlay the screens and the narratives they will display.

For tomorrow we can discuss the progress on the model together with the new script I’m writing for the next version of the film [to post later]

Some references to start bringing into the wider argument of fact/fiction, surface and nested screens:

Through the three states of this Georgian room – the real, the virtual and physical – I can perhaps start to identify a few spaces:

The ubiquitous Pre-View / Waited Space – too clean and empty to actually be inhabited:

The Stylised Space – realistically possible even though in this case requires $$$ for furnishing:

The Super Inhabited Space:

And….. the view once the named view is lost (out of named view?):

The notion of styling of space really comes through in this image from an article titled How I Became an Interior Stylist:

The named view in regard to space relates to the contemporary curated identity. A recent project by Thailand-based photographer Chompoo Baritone showed a series of social media images and their possible out-of-frame realistic clutter:

The Facts

Fact 1: Scale cannot be perceived beyond a certain size

Fact 2: Space could always be reprogrammed

Fact 3: Blowup creates ambiguity

Fact 4: Photographs can distort reality

Fact 5: The writer elicits significance from things that need to be seen, while the architect does so from those already seen
