research on landscape perception, method development / installation _2013/4, Vienna. Support: Richardson, Timothy
The diploma project “special, spacial collection“ focuses on everyday spaces and personal routes through public, transitional spaces between two destination points. The objective of this project is to approach transition spaces in a personal manner, to explore what a person can find along an everyday route and how this influences space and person. A book combines executed artistic studies and theoretical research, to communicate the results of this study.
In three steps this study proceeds from an areal overview, to the dynamics of space and place and the personal experience of a daily route.

The “Happy machine” is an interactive installation. It deals with the mechanical repetition of a spontaneous, happy event. Mixing the unexpected, happy event with the reliability of a machine, creates an absurdity, that questions the importance of coincidence. The “Happy Machine” creates the well known picture of two bunny ears and a small white tail in a meadow. The spectator initiates the bunny to hop, by releasing a mechanism. The rabbit hops for the visitor, as often as he wants. The person gains control over a situation.

The “Appropriation of Landscape” is an artistic research project, where the origin of landscape perception is questioned. The project is based on the philosopher and sociologist Lucius Burckhard and the question: “When is a landscape beautiful?”. During the research the origins of a personal landscape perception were questioned and appeared to be based on cultural knowledge. This lead to the idea to widen personal landscape “vocabulary” by the appropriation of unexpected landscape sceneries. A method was developed: unexpected places can be found with the help of a stopwatch.

“Land Exploration” is the translation of a personal experience in “Appropriation of Landscape” to a land exploration tool. The developed map is blank, in the process of exploration it will be filled with landscape names. These names are a personal expression of the perception of a landscape scenery. Different landscape explorers are connected with each other via an online platform, where experiences can be shared and a common map of landscapes is created. The slowly growing map is not a traditional map, but formed by words, which describe landscape sceneries.

The project “Space in Motion” was developed for Praterstern, a square in Vienna. It is an important place where public transport (train, bus, subway and tram) meets individual transport (cars, bikes and pedestrians). All day long everybody and everything is moving at this transition space. The only people which see the “Spectacle” of movement are the people that stand still. Inspired by the sitting, standing, waiting homeless people at the square the idea was born to make the transition movement visible. Different installations should translate the invisible movement into a moving spectacle to tell the story of the space in motion.

2012 “Steward” in the Botanical Graden of Vienna, Austria
visualization of a memory _2012 Design Academy Eindhoven, The Netherlands
The project “Memory Box” deals with the idea of visualizing a certain memory. Pictures in our memory are vague and uncertain, like my personal memory of a certain lake in the mountains of north Italy. My visualization of this vague memory are blurry slides. Non of them shows the real lake, however by combining different lakes I managed to visualize the image in my head. The chest, which contains the slides is based on the architecture of “Superstudio”. And represents the more actual memories, of design and art.

Steward is a modern and flexible information system for the Botanical Garden of the University of Vienna. The main idea was to create an uniform system, based on a easy recognizable visual language. The chosen image was a plant cell. Cells are units of small information, all together create one working system. The cell conglomerate is very flexible, it can grow and shrink. This is very important for a botanical garden, were plants are added and replaced. By using a botanical metaphorical language we connect the information system to the biological interest of the garden. The system becomes a part of the botanical garden.

"Common Secrets" deals with non-places*, in particular with the intersections of public transport systems. Negative aspects like solitude, similarity, latency, anonymity and the lack of relationships are given a new interpretation. Solitude and similarity offer privacy. Latency can be seen as a break, a possibility to rest. Anonymity frees a person from role models and social restraints. The lack of true relationships is a chance to put the focus on oneself. Short texts, written on the tram platform, were used to transport this new interpretation. Each text tells a story of a person. He/she is leaving a role, for example the role of a student, who is about to enter a new role, the bartender.

“Cutting through the Danube Channel” is a repetitive description of the objects along the Danube Channel in Vienna. Every 5 min the surrounding from horizon to horizon is described. By repeating this act a collection of words is formed. Words witch have a certain location on the paper. A word map was created that shows how the landscape around the channel changes. It is a pattern of moving words and a repetitive structure. The reader has to interpret the words in the map and follow the Danube channel from it's origin thill it's end.
