X-FIBRA subdividing space through performative surfaces
confluence of public and private urban spaces within the spatial and temporal matrix of an existing urban fabric
The intervention provides a context to understand the confluence of public and private urban spaces within the spatial and temporal matrix of an existing urban fabric. It has the potential of rethinking the nature of connection between the courtyard and the street, dealing with the continuity between those types of spaces oftentimes visually and physically disconnected. The intervention provides provisional occupation of space that suggest other uses and possible ways of reintegrate urban life in unused or misused spaces. The textile surfaces simultaneously work as object and enclosure integrating conductive fibers to constantly reshape the environment and its occupation. The conductive fibers create an Artificial Landscape augmenting the environment. Each individual module follows the generative logic of crossing , braiding and looping while being integrated in a larger surface. Emphasis on the definition of woven and flexible support matrix characterizes the textile surface.
A fabricated landscape of cones finds its origins in the ambient sounds of New Orleans. This site specific installation emphasizes the transformation of invisible sound bands and frequencies into an atmosphere landscape made of material and color. The sculptural topography, intricately fabricated from individual pieces, is made of 300 CNC milled acrylic plates that are folded to create cylindrical cells snapped together with 10,000 rivets. Each cell, unique in diameter and height, creates an intriguing visual surface reminiscent of geological or biological surfaces.
Sounds augment the dimension of public space, linking geography with human activity
Spatial possibilities as sound acts as a generator for transforming matter into a complex spatial topography otherwise invisible to the naked eye
Sounds augment the dimension of public space, linking geography with human activity. The intervention reinterprets the traditional relationship of sound defined by physical space. Rather, the installation offers new spatial possibilities as sound acts as a generator for transforming matter into a complex spatial topography otherwise invisible to the naked eye. The â€œsoundscapeâ€? surface moves around the room, creating a promenade for the visitor. It is like waves. Light and shadow are at play as oneâ€™s eyes blur the registration of 300 individual cellular elements against the rich visual experience of their aggregated field. The spectator is invited to ponder the three dimensional iridescent pattern and flows. The resulting effect, with its shifts in color, form, light, and surface, provide the viewer with a compelling, perceptually transformative spatial experience. 10
INFields clustering sub-spaces within a field INFields is an artificial topography that redefines the traditional urban boundaries of public and private space. A system of programmed clusters compress and expand the traditional performative surfaces thresholds associated with the urban courtyard condition. The result is a reinterpretation of conventional urban components into an integrated spatial network. The combinatorial capacity of the space is given by its multiplicative character in relation to visual illusion and change of points of view.
The logic that generates the location of each single module follows combinatorial disposition as “possibility of simultaneous existence” but also as “possibility of a given series of events”. The generated pattern on the ground has the capacity to locate a type of structure in which all the components point represent single moments within a field. Each point is extruded vertically in a tube /light component and then grouped in a series of clusters. Clusters are not joined hierarchically but rather distributed to occupy and negotiate the courtyard‘s edge while increasing the density of the space.
