Propeller (2013)

In 1802, Friedrich Von Schelling coined the phrase, "architecture is frozen music," but in fact, architecture has always been represented as matter frozen in time and space. Propeller is a corrective for that common misconception. Using computational photographic capture technologies, our senses are amplified in order to obtain a kinesthetic experience of architectural representation.

Propeller is a selection from a longer video work utilizing indexical recordings of specific sites as portable yet still physically activated experiences.

The subject of this exploration is Bioscleave House by Arakawa + Gins.

Thank you to the Reversible Destiny Foundation, and especially to Madeline Gins and Don Byrd.
