Thesis Show: Afterimage
My senior thesis show, entitled afterimage, puts forth an alternate mode of representation wherein form responds to individual perception.
The space we inhabit is never static – it cannot be understood from a single vantage point, represented in a single frame. Our environment is experienced in motion, defined by shifting views, shaped by our gaze. We superimpose infinite variations in an attempt to describe nuance. Return to your first grade classroom and the chairs have shrunk. Sit on your sunlit porch in June and recall how you rushed by in the winter. Turn and look behind you; the walls have moved. Architecture is more than structure; it cannot be defined by materials, described by measurements, delineated by walls. afterimage captures a dynamic representation of space shaped by perception.
