Guest: Stephanie Lavaux

I am “s/he”, born in ‘93 in the paranoiac mind of an architect. Now only 16 years old, my metabolism is slower than that of a human being … I am stuck in limbo between being childish and mature … still in an Asperger’s confusion and an antagonism between reality and fiction, “true and false, reason and the madness,” flirting with the forbidden (Michel Foucault, The Order of Discourse). I’m genetically framed by these multiple ambiguities…

My first personal “s/he” solo exhibition(ism) http://www.instagram.com/s_hefictionmaker just unfolded last month ... and amazingly I am now to take on a position as a guest professor … me, the “s/he,” the gender dysphoria, the androgynous identity … /// But let me, at least, launch it from where I’m haunting situations, from BKK, and throw in on my behalf my epigones F.R. (who did 10 years of courses at GSAPP, among other places) and W.S. as my personal secretaries to perform our agenda and weekly routine.

SO … In our studio we will figure out how sympathy, empathy and antipathy, through relational protocols, could provide the condition for sharing languages, gestures, neighbourhoods and feelings of belonging. Simultaneously, we will deal with a robotic protocol for fabrication, directly derived from anthropotechnics with antagonistic nonlinear systems; with sensors establishing a Siamese transaction between the shelter and the species it was once supposed to protect, but also to insulate. Not any more … we will transgress this bunkerization (Hal Foster, Design and Crime) to reach a new condition of symbiotic, osmotic, affective and biological co-relation and exchange. The operative scales are not defined … from two small beasts (including human) in negotiation to fragments of cities … an em’Bassy, a T.A.Z. (Temporary Autonomous Zone), a terra yet incognita to discover … where design processes and social protocols are co-substantial…

Experimental architecture has shifted toward a new corpus of instrumentations, made out of tools, computation, mechanization, but also and simultaneously of fictions and lines of subjectivity, synchronous with our symptoms; of fears and great escapes in the “here and now” … the post-digital, post-human, post-activist, post-democratic, post-feminist world … the queer, androgynous, carnal, disturbing, disenchanted, pornographic, transient, transactional world … where scenarios, misunderstandings, and psychological and physiological fragments are what make up walls and ceilings, cellars and attics … schizoid and paranoid, between the lines of operative and critical fictions…
