Maciej Stasiowski, PhD, investigates “paper architecture” and the unbuildable projects’ increasing incorporation of cinematic representational techniques; a subject parallelly analysed in a series of essays on visionary architects. His primary research interests include: film and issues of filmic space, architectural representation, science fiction literature and cinema, new media, but also unbuildable architectural projects and unmade films.

The Architecture of Sense-making for an Augmented World

Apophenia at Large


The Architecture of Sense-making for an Augmented World
Folk tales, kidstories for children or parables, storylines have always been regarded as the prime mode of understanding the world we inhabit. Narratives are meant to guide us through; to bring closer concepts inconceivable to fully grasp. This is Apophenia at Large

Type of project
  • Systemic changes

The project is meant to investigate concepts that fuse sense-making processes, posing questions about the algortihms behind the facade of the interface. Such paradigms of information flow as big data, cloud storaging, or data bunker have left most of us out in the open. As form of intuitive understanding, be it folk tales, kidstories for children or parables, narratives are meant to guide us through; bringing together concepts inconceivable to fully grasp. Rorschach-like inkblots challenge our forces of pattern recognition, as the emergent forms rely on our cognitive stencils. All concentrate on an intuitive approach to our most imediate environment as it becomes increasingly collated with global issues. In an age of the Anthropocene, one is unable (anymore) to think through compartmentalization towards spaces of daily experiences. It is vital to understand the presentday newspeak in order to revise core concepts of our post-industrial reality.
