Between the Haptic and the Optic
‘It is sharp and yet lands in a vague zone of myself. It is accurate yet muffled. It cries out in silence. Odd contradiction, a floating flash.’ – Roland Barthes
Through the obsolescent, light materialising and hand crafted alchemy of celluloid motion picture film, the project seeks to spatially compose an internal landscape and architectural binary of positive and negative, between sight and touch, accommodating the material and tactile nature of its development and exhibition. Through the hand caving of working models: form made manifest through light, and the surface texture of plaster as light receiving plane, the architecture seeks to negotiate the discrepancy between the projected flicker and the transient fall of natural light, through curated architectural aperture and the frame as a fourfold cut in projective space; rendering the inhabitant as both spectator and object of another’s gaze.
