Out of Sight

The complex environments that we inhabit are defined by boundaries that have changed as the ongoing techno-industrialization extends into our daily lives, which will be more and more defined by data, social media and black liquid screens. We are surrounded by a variety of surfaces, from skins to floors to screens, the latter embodying the tension between the material and the immaterial.

Within this condition of our daily lives certain aspects are rendered invisible to our vision or perception. How can we grasp or relate to what we cannot see? Whether on a microscopic level, underneath the surface or behind walls that are permeable to climatic conditions, nested within matter itself or transmitted within the flickering digital flux, much phenomena lay unnoticed that impact our lives.

By focusing on typologies of the surface, MIARD students have designed projects that address this urgency within our new spatial reality.
