                                                                                 Of Entropy


        Beginning of our project involved re-enacting and mapping the action ''of Entropy'', with our bodies, in the space of the city. We came to understand Entropy as a series of multi-directional movements exploding exponentially outwards from a centre point. For our double element, we then imagined a space that materializes and contains both this node of centrality and the possibility of its dispersal, both within the element itself and in its relation to the surrounding public street. From inside the element, it is now the body that remains stationary and the eye that moves: as a series of panoramic windows allows the inhabitant's gaze to disperse in multiple directions throughout the city.

                                            From the inside, the viewer has a panoramical view of the random movements which surround him

                              Due to the study of the movement, we could decide where we would place the windows, in order to see the different body                                                                                                    parts of the people surrounding the structure

                                          Even if the structure was made for an inhabitant, the view is also redirected for someone outside the structure.

                                                                                        The windows act like a funnel for the eye.

    Finally, we have done a study about the height of the different inhabitants of the structure. Indeed, the view is completely different from the starting point at 170cm (medium height of an adult) and the finale view at 120cm (height of a child).

                               Of Entropy (Richard Serra's, "Verb List Compilation: Actions to Relate to Oneself")


    Entropy :

    english en- (inside) and the greek -trope (transformation)

    • (communication theory) the numerical measure of the uncertainty of an outcome, quantifies the lack of information 
    • lack of order or predictability; gradual decline into disorder.

    Idea of disorder and uncertainty.


    Our interpretation of entropy through the movement :

    Same exit, people spread out in unpredictable and random directions.

  • ELEMENTS / to bounce

    Par Allae Elfarrah, Dylan Heim, Maximilian Glaus, Zehra Ter, 15/11/16

    We performed the action “To Bounce” around a row of colonnades in the city. Measuring and mapping the key points of this movement (which corresponded to chosen points on the body performing it), we developed a materialisation of this movement both in drawing and in three dimensions. The “bouncing” of our model was translated into a series of unique triangles, each one different, but nonetheless the result of the mapping of the movement of the body in space. In doing this we were able to reduce the movement to its core principles: path, energy and variation.

    The form of the triangle, derived from the points of the moving body in space, has been carried throughout the element as a complete structural system. Every component of the element therefore also constitutes the element’s structure. There is no part of the element that is structurally superfluous, and each components works to support the others. The components of the element have been designed to be easily assembled and disassembled without glue or tools.

    The element acts as both window and door, emphasising the relationships between newly defined spaces, and the creation of thresholds between one space and another. One can step in and out of the element at any point, or continue through it, as it directs the visitor to re-perform our first passage of movement around the columns.
