AA.MEDIA

Architectural Association
Media Studies


AA MEDIA is an experimental testing ground for exploring and interrogating the tools of the discipline – tools with which we speculate, manipulate and play; compute, control and test; communicate, seduce, and provoke.

Acting as both training camp and laboratory, it is a diverse, multidisciplinary program where unexpected collisions and obsessive attention to detail expose a rich seam of creative potential. Media Studies presents an opportunity to develop individual practice, where students hone their dexterity with established and progressive media, actively testing modes of production through focused acts of doing and making.

SHAPES OF FICTION 2 : EMERALD LOGICS

CHARLES ARSENE HENRY and CHRISTOPHER JOHNSON
Wednesdays, 2-5pm, Room TBC in Term 2

In 1897 Stéphane Mallarmé discovered the multiverse in the form of a poem. Equipped with metafictional instruments you will enter and adapt A Throw of the Dice Never Will Abolish Chance as if reanimating an abandoned spaceship. Meta : a state of fiction in which operations — tropic movements, scopic shifts, transitions, speeds etc — are entities equal to heroic characters. Side Operagraphy includes: David Lynch Twin Peaks The Return; Grant Morrisson Multiversity; Edgar Allan Poe The Purloined Letter. Sessions will take place as a real time dialogue between two entities.
