OPTOTOPIA


OPTOTOPIA lecture & exhibition New England College of Optometry as part of Light InSight lecture series http://www.neco.edu/research/IYL2015 

lecture: 
ARCHITECTURAL APPARATUSES FOR SPATIAL LIGHT 

“Sealed” buildings and window-less working offices disconnect humans from natural light, pollute them with artificial light, and eventually disrupt their biological rhythms: Depression, insomnia, tiredness to name a few of the familiar problems of this “illegal” architecture. I propose a series of interventions that aim to provocatively express these problematic condition and spaces to advance quality of living. These architectural apparatuses are spatial elements (such as walls and horizontal surfaces, objects, and modular systems) that act as transmitors of natural light in dark spaces. Other times they are hybrid structures/gardens and edible structures that evolve in space. And other times playful micro-tectures that challenge perception, reveal immaterialities, and map the spatio-temporal changes. 

exhibition: 
OPTOTOPIA 

Optotopia is an exhibition of architectural apparatuses that interplay with light, vision, architecture, perception, and space through camera obscura techinques. Optotopia presents two site-specific installations that are placed under New England College of Optometry (NECO) iconic skylights. Optotopia installations observe the light diffusion and reflection deriving out of the skylights and intervene by reflecting the images of the skylights and surrounding spaces.
