Spatializing Invisible Matter
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this paper is to present and discuss current prac- tices of computational media and sensor technologies used for identifying, capturing, and transforming the properties of an interior space, providing customized architectural environments. It explores the challenge of properly measuring and recording invisible matter on an atomic level using a range of technologies (sensors, custom electronics, databases, networks, cloud com- puting), nding methods of manipulating digital representations, and developing techniques for spatializing information into the built environment. Therefore, this study demonstrates how sen- sor technologies and custom electronics provide methods to accomplish e ective measurements in real time by scraping atomic substances and sni ng particles out of thin air, as well as using software tools to spatialize and distribute informa- tion into the environment with media elements such as lighting, imaging, or visualizations. These techniques allow us to extend architectural intelligence to habitats of awareness that enable a range of imaginative possibilities.
