On Unexplored Paths

A journey through a virtual reproduction of space

Alois Hehenberger

"On Unexplored Paths" is an audiovisual installation. It is an artistic exploration of reading and perceiving space on behalf of the emerging technology of laser-scanning and pointcloud models. The project deals with the virtual reproduction of space dislocating “real space” into the digital realm. It is a journey through an environment where usual physical constraints don’t exist and where conventional sensations and perceptions is challenged.

The visual representation unveils potentials for a new reading and understanding of space and spatial correlations. Physical limitations will disperse and one will be able to fly, transgress walls and ceilings, capture forensic detail, morphological information and depth through diaphanous bodies. Through its abundance of detail, morphological complexion and geographical information, a 3-D model of a pointcloud allows for an intrinsic exploration of how architecture can to re-approach the question of the digital.

Pointclouds and their characteristics will influence the methodology and unveil new design matters. Introducing these issues into the discourse of the profession will extend the realm of architectural practice beyond its current authority. The current state of the composition is the starting point of a new way to envision space, experience and perception. It is about blurring the discontinuity between the real and the virtual world.

A production of immersive moments.
