Perspective in ProjectionPosted: May 2, 2015
These installations use technical properties to provide a visual that distorts perception, similar to The Red Studio by Matisse: the beginning and ending of the architectural elements are unclear because the projection has suggested a paradox of the space.
Throughout architectural space in the 2014 Venice Biennale, Koolhaas’ research lead him to scrutinize the existing fundamentals of our buildings (from floor to fireplace to staircase). The result of Koolhaas’ part in the Beinnale included permeating the ordinary spaces to respond to the presence of people in a ‘smarter’ way.
Imagery of the revitalized space such as the image above, shows how space can be visualy manipulated through the floor to provide a different perspective. When my space for the degree show is ready to build in, I will be able to adapt the projections to create a space that can alter the perception of outside of the space, to disorientate and confuse the viewer much like the feeling I have from within a dream scenario.
