Forms of impressions


Building meaning through transformations

Forms of impressions


Building meaning through transformations
I imagine an architecture that formulates by the multiplicity of perceptual intensities of our digital inputs.

Over the last years we are experiencing an immersion into a new virtuality. This immersion is composed of a vast amount of abstract objects such as situations and impressions. As suggested by the fields of cognition and perception we tend to think about immaterial concepts as concrete objects that formalize, in our brains, with a specific materiality. This project is aiming in presenting an architecture of events and tries to construct space via the intensities of the narrative. Starting with the idea that architects are in principle event organizers, it tries to crystallize, in form, the multiplicity of intensities that we perceive when watching a movie, a sequence of events and compares them with their spatial counterpart. The temporal and spatial variations of intensities that take place through the manipulation of data, are captured from an optical flow algorithm. Then, the data are reorganized by self-organizing maps to reveal structures of meaning.
