Die Poesie des Erweiterten Raumes

@ VOL 21 ON APR 14, 2012

A room is defined by its demarcations, the exclusion from its environment, the limitation of the room for manoeuvre and the space for thought, its volume, its dimensions, its room shell and its haptic materials, its lightning and its acoustic and narrative potential. The expandable room is a vision of a room, “which casts its shadows into the future” and – metaphorically speaking – creates shadows of the room. By the use of projected film, a virtual expansion and transformation is possible; the perception of room or spatial dimensions is not limited through physical borders anymore but solely dependent on the imaginative potential.
The associated, the imagined and poetical room takes the real room’s place. (in German)

Ein Raum wird bestimmt durch seine Umgrenzung, die Ausgrenzung des Umfeldes, die Eingrenzung des Handlungs-, Denk- und Spielraumes, sein Volumen, seine Dimension, seine Raumhülle und ihre haptische Materialität, seine Beleuchtung und sein akkustisches und narratives Potential. Der erweiterte Raum ist  eine Vision von Raum, "der seinen Schatten voraus wirft"  und Raumschatten im metaphorischen Sinn kreiert. Durch den Einsatz von projeziertem Film ist eine virtuelle Erweiterung und Verwandlung des Raumes möglich; die Wahrnehmung von Raum oder der Raumdimensionen ist nicht mehr durch die physischen Grenzen limitiert sondern allein vom Imaginationspotential abhängig. An die Stelle des realen Raumes tritt der assoziierte, der imaginierte, tritt der Poetische Raum.

Happy Soil Project

It starts from a simple idea: taking a child's drawing of a house, and then actually building it using branches. David Pollard first initiated the project in Birmingham, England, where the structure was brought into the city center to amazing effect. Wanting to spread the idea to other places in the world, the next stop was Tachikawa in Tokyo, where he would try to recreate the experiment, this time converting an unused -- yet yakuza-owned -- piece of land. With the help of architecture students -- who had to take time to "rediscover" the simple act of building -- the installation was a success. It later turned into an art installation, eventually included as part of the Tokujin Yoshioka-curated "Second Nature" exhibition at 21_21 Design Sight in Roppongi, which was also accompanied by a children's workshop. David Pollard and Tomonari Waku presented the project at Pecha Kucha Night in Tokyo (Vol. 58), where they also expanded on other similar DIY experiments and installations.

Painting with Light

Light painting isn't a new art form by any stretch, but recently it's been revitalized and enhanced by the DIY community. In today's edition of Presentation of the Day, we see the extent to which the medium has grown.  In his presentation (from PKN Barcelona Vol. 10) Mateusz Staniewski enlightens us on the finer details of the photographic art. The techniques he goes into include light-stenciling, freezing, and painting; when combining these methods the results are both literally and figuratively luminous.
