‘The Spectator makes the picture’ Marcell Duchamp
Developing the void, anamorphic projection and deciding on the vantage point and how to design it; I thought about the meeting I had in NYC with Todd Rouhe and we discussed one of their project which they borrowed/ designed a ring inspired by Aldo Van Eyck flat’s furniture ( a ring becomes bench). So I thought that perhaps my vantage point takes that form too, using the ring as a point, so that it directs the viewer to the projection in the centre of the pedestrian avenue.
Also, I can start to create references to the work of semester one- as footnotes on each postcard or on the reverse. Below are some images and precedents, as I start to develop the post cards too.
Also, a very interesting read on the ‘void’ found here: http://www.failedarchitecture.com/the-poetry-of-decay/
I though it related nicely to Adam’s imagination of the Void and my theory of preservation.
‘The voids provide space for the observer to interpret them as she or he likes, to fill them with imaginations and meanings…..
Gordon Matta-Clark, who did not just use the void as a building block in his works of art, he created voids himself as an act of preservation. He physically cut buildings that were about to be demolished. By creating the void, Matta-Clark charged the structure with a certain tension, leaving an impression in the mind of the observer and by doing so, preserving the building.’

I can now start the TS for this intervention, which Colin has advised on, and also design the Towers for next week.
