In collaboration with Megan Feehan, this workshop was an exploration with Lust of the ‘area where the virtual and physical merge, where new things can happen.’ The site was the CIT building and its immediate surroundings of the city block. We were asked to research – to do, in Jeroen’s words, ‘a very-very-quick-scan’ of the area to determine a point of entry. Ideas ?would develop from analyses of the scan.
We started with the idea that there is a lot of hidden information inherent ?to a building’s functioning. For example, the wireless networks that exist in the building that pop in and out of use are different depending on where one is located. We collected the names of each wireless network from each of the four corners, on each of the 6 floors. We also were interested in the elevator’s usage – is an elevator always running, where are the gaps in use? ?Where does it travel over a certain period of time? How could it be recorded and visually displayed in real-time?
This animation is a collection of what would be projected on the face ?of the building. The purpose was to show various functions of the building such as the elevator usage, shadows reacting to the extruded materials that make up the facade, the wi-fi networks that exist in the building which pop in and out of use depending on where one is located, the weather, the window shade position based on location of the sun, a computer animation affected by the physicalness of the building, the human activity of each floor and discipline, and lastly exposing the structural framework of the building.
Besides being visually interesting. This hints at the inner life of the building—that it is a constantly changing thing. It is a solid material but also an interactive design.

I used to walk by the Arcade building and what used to be the Providence Bank Building almost everyday for the two years I lived in Providence.
The empty space remains static, yet movement surrounds it constantly. ?How could this space be activated again? I was interested in showing how the short term alters the long term structures, and how time can be put back on to not only a once active space but on the streets by challenging scale. This project is an experimental projection of activating space.

This is a reductive study of exterior light as it moves through interior space. The motion and speed of objects are reframed as subtle color shifts through time. Beginning in early morning, the light and temperature sits differently than as the day shifts to afternoon, and then to night as the room shifts to cooler shadows.
These changes seem imperceptible, but when seen collectively, they compose complete chapters for each segment of time during the day.

We can read and navigate cities in different ways: walking through them at street level, or seeing them in aerial view when we fly overhead, but we cannot see all the views at once. I began with drawing these structures from a bird’s eye view in search of letters and words created within the city grid. By stripping these buildings from their environment to show when left free standing, they read as letters, built next to each other due to their shapes
This is a formal survey of buildings in San Francisco where grid-iron plans meet. As if typography, these buildings complete the city grid this first animation shows these structures individually and in the order in which they located depending on their adjoining structure second animation shows them as a collection aimed at understanding one in term of the other, concentrating on their relationship when stripped away from the grid. third animation: my initial hope was to find that these buildings actually spelled something out when seen from above, but I had no such luck in San Francisco, so I made one last animation

This January when flying over New York City, for a brief moment when peering out of the airplane window, the city appeared holistic, yet I knew once I hit the ground, this narrow linear extent in space would not be experienced from that view again. There I was with my camera, I sought out a way to enumerate as many angles and views that I could. How could I possibly emulate these views and shearing layers of time while walking the streets? Beginning with taking photos, I then took these images and started to cut through them, zooming in on angles and depth and composing them in a cubist manner. These animations demonstrate the ever-changing urban geometries within a short time frame.
Final compositions were then made into large scale posters. size: 35.6 x 50.4
