“Sensitive Space” is a prototype for the space which goes beyond the imagination. A Space which underlies Georg Flachbart’s pledge for “disappearing architecture”, it radically expands the Jacques Lacan’s “other” and it is build utterly out of information: light, visual image and audio. Nothing haptic. A meta-machine is tracking the position of the visitors within the space and triggers the composition fragments thereafter.
“Sensitive space” is questioning the performative space and space for performance, dismantling the traditional notion of rather static relationship between the performer and the audience. It describes a new way how the collective perception can influence the performance itself and introduces the paradigm “form follows feedback”.
We propose an alternative mode of production, which deterritorialise notions of object’s commodity and spectacle, not in leaving architecture and becoming something else, nor by commenting directly on current or past notions of architectural production. ORTLOS – Space Engineering maintains an interest in media specificity, but instead of announcing itself through and obsolete author position however the product might imply a diffuse interactive environment, it deterritorialises entirely the position of the production, not only design strategies but also of performative processing as production, not to mention of how it dislocates notion of collaboration and generates ubiquitous space of constant information over-flow.
Within “Sensitive Space” we advocate the method of Alloplastic considering the
relationship between performance and performative space.
