Presentation Title:

  • Fabrique: shaping experiential landscape




  • Abstract

    Do we perceive landscape through visual abstraction or participate in its manifestation as a living system? Do we experience it as detached spectators or through affective charge? Does landscape represent a crystallised form or one of many states within a system of interaction? Unfolding the processes of inhabiting landscape constituted the initial conceptual frame of Fabrique. The intention was to create a living landscape, an organism in the place of the picturesque, visual landscape. To reinvent landscape as an experience, involves engaging people as both actors and spectators in a bi-directional relationship. Also, finally, to explore systems’ potential to allow for emergent relationships rather than imposed ones. Through the development of the project these quests became more pragmatic, addressing issues of affect and participation, the formation of spatial and algorithmic systems, and, the use of physical objects to create hybrid interfaces.
