COLLARORATIVE WORKSHOP

WRITING SITE

How do we engage with a site, its forces and the definition thereof without access to it? How do we see it? How do we invent it? Through the collaboration with a writer and hacker, we aim to write our site into being using the virtual portal of our computers. We will through writing articulate the attributes and relational dynamics of a site and attempt to find and define it through a virtual gaze. The objective of the works is to define a Site – more specifically a Situation (set of circumstances defined upon a particular territory) that will serve the research interests.


Through the use of the written word and the varying dynamics of the architectural site, this interdisciplinary, collaborative engagement seeks to interrogate and experiment with the notion of the ‘site’ as a location (physical, digital, spiritual, or otherwise) that can be better understood, challenged, and defined through language (written, visual, or otherwise). Freewriting, play, digitality, hacking, public text, open-access ideologies, and virtual gatherings are some of the primary points of departure for this engagement.
