An Architectural Time Machine, 2011, 2013
Constructing an ephemeral and spatialised time based event, Performance installation, Old depot, Old street, London
The project looks at how an architectural machine can create an architectural time based event.
The machines creates a series of vortex air and ephemeral scent zone, which constructs the visualisation of unfolding motion of time in space.
The installation proposed is translating the geometrical proportion of the building, the portico, UCL into rhythmic beating. Machines are placed in the semi-enclosed area of the portico. As the machines blow vortex rings with scents to golden proportional rhythm, they unfold continuous tempo in space.
These give observers not only an unfolding spectacular performance of vortex rings travelling through space, but also vortex rings and scents from the machines are temporally spatialised and visualised.
