immaterial,

honestly the discourse makes me sick to my stomach, and if i see the phrase “cishet ace” used in a derogatory way one more time, i’m gonna go off. you guys are using the phrase as a weapon, you’re using it without regard for the implications behind it, you’re using it against people who aren’t cishet because really it’s just code for “ace people,” and you’re intimidating non-cishet ace people into staying silent on the subject because the inherent threat in the phrase is that the ace part of one’s identity is immaterial/any ace persons place in the LGBT+ community is contingent on them being a “good” ace. 

enough enough enough. i’m so tired. please unfollow me if this post makes you angry, please don’t fuck me up with this anymore. i was coming to terms with my identity until this year, when this website fucked me over once again. 

We join spokes together in a wheel,
but it is the center hole
that makes the wagon move.

We shape clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside
that holds whatever we want.

We hammer wood for a house,
but it is the inner space
that makes it livable.

We work with being,
but non-being is what we use.

I believe the 21st century will be a world without art in the sense that we have it now. It will be a world without objects, where the human being can be on such a high level of consciousness and has such a strong mental state that he or she can transmit thoughts and energy to other people, without needing objects in between. So there will not be sculptures, or paintings, or installations. There will just be the artist standing in front of a public, which is developed enough to receive a message or energy. They will just sit or stand , like the Samurai in old Japan, looking at each other and transmitting energy. This is the future world I see as an artist: a non-objective world.

Scanning The Mist’ | SCANlab | is a project whereby, in this case a room has been 3D scanned for it’s dust/ mist/smoke particles. This to most is classes as an invisible material or as invisible matter.

From the site We thought it might be interesting to see if the scanner could detect smoke and mist. It did and here are the remarkable results! ”

By 3D scanning it, it takes on a solid, less ephemiral and more substantial place within the room, creating something palimpsestuous to a degree. A room inside a room as aposed to the derivation of palimpsest of a book inside a book.

The Art of Vesod

Vesod was born in Turin in 1981 and he lives and works in a Venaria Reale (TO). His artistic attitude has been fostered by his father Dovilio Brero, surrealistic painter, whose influence has an impact on Vesod since his youth: he has been therefore developing an interest in the graffiti world since the beginning of the 90s.

Vesod creates a personal language in which time is considered as a concept, which by being closed into immaterial solid shapes, is crystallized into geometric shape in order to revisit the idea of the eternal present.

Immaterial Architecture - Jonathan Hill.

This book is one of the best accounts of Architectural Theory I’ve ever read. The ideals created by Hill about immateriality are truly eye opening and warrant a deeper analysis and experimentation into it’s practicalities within Architecture.

Within the book, Hill sets up an Index of Immaterial Qualities which can act as not only theoretical drivers but potentially pragmatic ones to further enhance the Architectural experience, phenomenologically - in a bid to drive multi sensory experiences. These indexes range from Condensation to Air-Conditioning to Fireworks and my particular favourite dust. (which is shown above)

Jonathan Hill works as an Academic and Architectural Historian at The Bartlett and runs Unit 12

Immaterials

Materializing the Distribution of WiFi Strength as a Physical Bar Graph. This project explores the invisible terrain of WiFi networks in urban spaces by light painting signal strength in long-exposure photographs. A four-metre long measuring rod with 80 points of light reveals cross-sections through WiFi networks using a photographic technique called light-painting.
