<nettime-ann> Space2 : A Psychocartography of Conceived Presence
(Oslo, 03.04.2007) Following the success of the installation Space2 at
ROM for Art + Architecture, its new location is now at Euklides
(Pilestredet 75C, Oslo). Space2 is the continued development of
Transcendence, developed by the Norwegian architectural laboratory
SERENDIPIT:US (Eli Goldstein & Kjersti Wikstrøm) at Dispatx Art
During 2 simultaneous journeys in Berlin and New York, an archive of
experience (atlas of emotion) was established. Through conceiving
presence, the project Transcendence crystallizes the condition of
sensing one space while imagining / conceiving the presence of another
- a process that mirrors the shared experience of being in two places
at the same time, whilst co-existing in the shared virtual space.
Hundreds of visitors from architects and artists to established
writers, sociologists, anthropologists and philosophers have
experienced the playful and interactive installation in the past three
weeks. Space2 has a critical focus on the processes and procedures of
design - constituting in a methodological experiment within the borders
of art, architecture and research.
Focusing on the creative method - the organisational process that
translates creative vision to creative product - is fast moving beyond
online curatorial platforms such as Dispatx. The Norwegian Architecture
Association (NAL), the Association for Interior Design, and KHIO – the
Oslo School of Art – have all expressed significant interest in
SERENDIPIT:US as a result of this work.
Euklides is focused on crossing borders between art & design, looking
to make anti-standardized products and building commercial models
related to them. For SERENDIPIT:US, this touches on some of the main
reasons for engaging in the study of subjectivity, personal habitats
and spatial values, as well as these factors’ role in the perception of
space and in generating new spaces or objects. Focusing on methodology
and analysis in generating and exploring real or imagined spaces, their
work approaches phenomenological aspects of spatial conditions.
Dispatx Art Collective (www.dispatx.com) is a curatorial platform for
the development and presentation of contemporary art and literature.
