Screen space

Screen space explores the space between site and it’s representation. iPads are mounted on motorised tracks that creak and squeak following their designated path. As the iPad moves over the static architectural site, the exact representation in scale is seen on the screen. The screen’s scanning movement simultaneously conceals and reveals the real architectural site below. Traditional theories of the ‘filmic gaze’ fail to address the effect of spatiality, the act of crossing or inhabiting space are not explored or explained. This movement from optic to haptic reflects film’s position within the spatial arts, sitting more comfortably next to architecture and performance than many of the visual arts.
