The affective capacity of things : encountering the intensive spatial and temporal conditions of the sculptural project

posted on 2017-02-16, 03:47 authored by Sinanoglu, Ceren
The research project The Affective Capacity of Things: encountering the intensive spatial and temporal conditions of the sculptural project, is to examine the concept of sculpture as an experiment, one in which a multiplicity of spatial and temporal relations occw- when activated. This research maps the web of relations activated in the studio-project via the process of constructing a series of propositional sculptural spaces. The function of the research is to generate a series of connections across contexts that develop a deeper understanding of the structuring conditions of sculptural practice as a spatial production. This is done by drawing from philosophy, architectural theory, art theory and practices to develop new connections and new modes of conceiving space. The questions that have oriented this research are: • How does the studio-project work to activate space? • What are the structuring conditions of the studio-project? and What is its capacity to generate new modes of spatial and temporal relations?
