  1. ..:The Aegis Hyposurface:..

    Discussion started by imported_El Mamerro - Dec 27, 2002

    This project was developed for a competition for an interactive art-work for the Birmingham Hippodrome theatre foyer. The piece is a facetted metallic surface that has potential to deform physically in response to electronic stimuli from the environment (movement, sound, light,etc). Driven by a bed of 896 pneumatic pistons, the dynamic 'terrains' are generated as real-time calculations. The piece marks the transition from autoplastic (determinate) to alloplastic (interactive, indeterminate) space, a new species of reciprocal architecture.



    [BEGIN INCOHERENT ARTFAG-TECHNO BABBLE]
    "The Aegis project began as a speculative idea to try to take the calculating speed of the computer out into 3-dimensional, to deform an 'elastic' architectural surface real-time in response to any electronic input. This would be to actualize the age-old dream of a dynamic and responsive architecture capable of responding physically to stimuli from its surrounding environment - the sounds and movements of people, weather, information... In giving substance to this dream we envisaged a matrix of actuators given positional information via a highly efficient bus system, and an array of electronic sensors used to trigger a variety of mathematical deployment programs. The challenge has been to bring a highly responsive mechanical system (pneumatic) to a level of articulate and fluid control through its interception by a highly performative digital control system (which we have designed and built). The goal is to utterly radicalize architecture by announcing the possibility of dynamic form, and to then explore the cultural possibilities afforded by this new traumatic medium. It is, of course, harbinger of nanotechnology - the intersection of information and matter itself… What we present here is a first realization of a HypoSpace to come…"

    Like Wow Mayn.
    This is totally like blowing my degenerate, neglected wastoid mind. And I thought there would be no advancements past curly fritos. I feel like such an ass!
