Tearing a cleft in the continuous surface of reality
Thorne, Benjamin Brinklet
Master of Architecture
My thesis investigates representation and manipulation of spatial conditions intrinsically linked to the visual perception of materials and surfaces. Trying to develop architecture from visual relationships between materials, light, and the eye has required that I circumvent the objective view points of models, plans, sections, and elevations. I have constructed photographs directly from compositions of surfaces and light. The images are photographs of spaces which one perceives as inhabitable, spaces which are no longer tied to the size and scale of the compositions from which the images were derived.
