Architecture for a new year
– shapes matter less than the comfort that coheres within them.– outside assume vagaries and opposition.– architectures as transitional objects.– living within the teddy-bear.– in the Second Life installation: dynamic micro-architectures of– deconstruction and enclosure.– no entrances, no exits: one appears, disappears.– what constitutes coming and going are virtual particles = people.– virtual to the extent that one passes through doors and walls:one passes through flats, nodes, and textures. nothing is comfortable when the transitional turns on you.– Second Life = transitional object = preparation for virtual life.– real life = virtual life; body = inscription; wryting = body;– uncanny = inscription; world = word; word = idiotic.– micro-architectures of the visible: setting up the camera image just so: harboring time of day, weather, height, distance from avatar or avatar viewpoint, location beneath the ground or water surface or clothing, location in collusion with sheave-skin,moment of capture = arrangement of objects in flight.– micro-architectures within objects in flight: buildings escaped from occupants,homes escaped from families, dwellings escaped from inhabitants, bodies escaped from inscription.– bodies escaped from inscription: debris of the body, abjection.– abjection in micro-architecture: no place to sit, no place to lie: an avatar never lies. no place to sleep: an avatar never sleeps;no place to declare: an avatar tells the truth.– coordinates, program, language, protocol, code, alphanumerics,binary oppositions: the truth of anything unforsaken in the saying of it.– micro-architectures: between code and architecture.
