In August I had the opportunity to build the first prototype of the spacepod, a sort of auditory vehicle that defines architectural spaces with sound, and sends the listener flying through them. I will attempt to describe the concept, the solution we pursued, and what we learned.
This is more like a meta-post about how, when & who to create a wiki-page instead of a blog-post? I was thinking about posting about this modular collaboration that I'm planning to initiate, and also sum up my presentation from yesterday. I thought it would maybe be better as a wiki-page instead. But then I wasn't quite clear about the format and if it would be appropriate, and if I would be 'allowed'. Any thoughts? Thanks! Daniel
In one of the breakout group discussions I was particularly struck by a phrase mentioned by one of our members, he was interested in exploring “the why of the what.”
Theory and practice (or the technical aspects of practice) are often seen as separate things in academic study, but as any practicing artist knows they are one and the same, inexorably intertwined and anyone who ignores one over the other does so to their own detriment.
But, I must admit that I was hit right in the forehead by this innocent question of “why?”
