Variable multisensory spaces
In architecture, visible space, space that can be visually experienced, is almost always to the fore. Its arrangement, the significance of light, its furnishing. But spaces often have underestimated audible traits which – similar to light – can be used deliberately in architectural planning.
“Plural realities” plays with this knowledge and creates a variable auditive space, that enters into a dialogue with a variable visual space: the dominant interaction of our body with its environment through vision is modified by subtle auditory interventions so as to perplex our consciousness. The installation thus becomes a show laboratory for our ideas of space, demonstrating the influence of our habits of perception on our condition – and how this influence can be selectively controlled.
