Beyond the Visual Workshop

“Beyond the Visual” workshop for OSSA “Vision” with Gerriet K. Sharma

Workshop upon invitation by the Polish Association of Architecture Students (OSSA), part of the event “Vision” taking place October 13-21 2018, in Lodz, Poland.  Spatial audio composer and sound artist Gerriet K. Sharma will participate in the first half of the workshop.

Constantinos Miltiadis and Gerriet K. Sharma will give public lectures on the evening of October 15.

Workshop brief:
This workshop intends to explore architectural sensibilities beyond the “Visual” that the event title suggests. Starting from acoustic field experiments, participants will be called to analyse the -emergent- sonic dimension of the built environment.
Developing an awareness of the essential role that sound plays in our perception and cognition of space, we will experiment with an architectural composition that uses sound objects as building material. Contrary to the conceptual sphere of architecture which excludes such phenomena, we propose an approach intended to deepen the understanding of the non-visual aesthetics embedded in architecture. Introducing readings from various disciplines and working with both temporal and spatial digital media, the workshop intends to experiment with the spatiotemporal production of our lived environments, and eventually develop such prototypes in the virtual reality medium.
