Ramiro Diazgranados introduces Zoe Coombes and David Boira of Commonwealth. He argues that their work is well known and well published, but their name, their work is very different from the slicker names of other young firms. Their work suggests a critique of designers that apply the same formal desires at every scale. An
interesting contradiction is how they combine classical ideas of organization with baroque ideas of effect.

Abe discusses the body as an interface that directly engages the environment. He illustrates this with an installation he created with the office of Spanish architects Mansilla + Tu??n. An object was embedded with bone-conductor speakers that are audible when the head is placed in contact with the speaker. The object shape encouraged the user to hug the object in oder to hear the sounds, hence using the body as a direct interface to engage the environment.

Davies discusses her immersive virtual spaces. She shows a video of the 1995 “Osmose,” in which the breath and balance of viewers determines the experience. Davies plays a video of her latest project “Ephemere” from December 2003, which deals with proximity and speed. Davies explains that all the elements are choreographed, and the sound is localized and generated in real-time.


Chris Burden

Introduction by:

Chris Burden discusses his beginnings as an architecture student and his transition to performance art. He describes his work in chronological order, stressing the relationship each project has to architecture, including pieces such as Dreamy Nights (1974), White Light/White Heat (1974), and Wexner Castle (1990). Burden connects his interest in live performance to his interest in the performative aspect of architecture, and his more recent work dealing with buildings, bridges, and construction. Burden presents his Beam Drop Film. This is followed by a question and answer session with the audience.
