Michiel Huijben

A Guide to Concrete Living
2016

A talk on the dematerialization of (our understanding of) space, focusing on the interdependencies between actual (architectural) and virtual spaces. It takes the form of a virtual walk through existing architectural spaces, taking the exhibition space as a starting point.

Walking through a 3D rendered labyrinth composed of diverse interiors, we visit modernist homes to experience their free plans; walk on sets of American sitcom series designed for the screen, and through generic office lobbies and Dutch terrace houses, among other places.

Duration 45 mins.

Performed at:

min-, Rotterdam, in April 2016
