Summary

Key competences for every architect are the ability to represent ideas coherently and communicate a project's aims effectively. Design, painting, photography, modelling and graphics are essential to the architectural project and become didactic instruments for the development of individual talent.

Content

MERGED REALITIES

With digital media exerting a decisive influence on our contemporary environment, our view of the world is undergoing constant changes. Computer and information technologies are increasingly shaping our environment. It has become ever more difficult to draw a clear line between what is virtual and what is real. Digital information and editing technologies continuously condition us as to how we perceive, understand, structure and transform our environment and how we express ourselves within it. The aesthetics and forms of expressions that have arisen from this digital world keep intermittently penetrating our visual environment, not merely the virtual one, but they also leave a clear footprint on our physical and analogue environment.


The starting points of the module are the aesthetics and forms of expression derived from digital origins. In a first step, digitally generated images as well as symbols and graphical fragments of computer user interfaces will be examined as to their appearance and optical characteristics. In a second step, the captured properties will have to be transferred pictorially and integrated into the photographic image. The main interest lies in the visual merging of 'virtual and real' by means of montage. During the semester, students will develop a picture work consisting of several pictures - based on the content conveyed in the teaching units and the exercises distributed throughout the course.

The course encourages the use of digital instruments in engaging at the very extreme limit of the interplay between reality and fiction.
