Degree Project Part I, Fall 2014

Navigating the Creative Process:
Advisor: Professor Silvia Acosta
 
This will be a place to share explorations as I work towards defining my interests and positions through a seminar course. The Degree Project Seminar provides an opportunity to explore and test applied research through individual work and group conversation.
 
This is the period where the intentions and goals for work are initiated and clarified.
Ground 1
Ground 2
Pile/Monolith
 
Neither part nor whole; no longer here, but not yet there.
 
Somewhere between within and without
Architecture objectifies our desires
 
The proposal seeks to explore a spatial order that examines the role of monolith in developing architectural space that is “bigger” on the inside, than on the outside. Notions of Inside/Outside - Background/Foreground - Horizontal/Vertical become primeval. The arrangement of architecture primitives reveals the Instability and ambiguity in a seemingly monolithic form. The body exists physically in the space, but simultaneously elsewhere through mediated form. We are able to project ourselves outside the physical constraints of architecture.
 
The sum made irrelevant, the absence made apparent

A House for the Stranger
 
Familial tangencies arrested by the denial of geometric fulfillment.
Resulting in a friction and fusion of an unstable plateau
The obliterated ground, below, above, made free to rise and fall
An expanse beyond objectified, forsaken from within, admired without
The sum made irrelevant, the absence made apparent
For the victim and victor: do you articulate or obfuscate?
 
A body without organs
A man without a mother
