Arch bates alex he sp23sub silo section perspective


Through strata of inhabitation, formal tension is materialized into spaces for production and the concentration of knowledge. Perceptions of space are temporal with an ever-changing understanding of coexistence. Synchronously jointed and disjointed at the same time, this allows for the manifestation of unexpected narratives to facilitate new spatial typologies. Renders mimic the experience of a bat utilizing echolocation and ambient lighting. An array of visual particles generate static visuals similar to the conditions provided by screening ink onto the wood. The grain mixed with bleeding ink, condenses to form loose pointillistic imagery. A series of these were produced to visualize an understanding of how the silo provides civic spaces for nocturnal more-than-human entities. This conceptual understanding of stratified inhabitation, informs the perceptions of temporal space to achieve a unified coexistence.
