"this film dwells in the discontinuities of experience. it asks us to engage with the world through images, whose most salient features are their scalpel lines which raises the dizzying possibility that we construct our world and not just look at it."
"there is always some kind of unbridgeable gap between what you represent and the reality."
"the joiner videos are brilliant at illustrating how much of our visual field is moving and piecing together bits"

|synopsis||The subject of the exhibition is about this notion of visually representing a subjective experience of space. For this we have surveyed two spaces in London, a studio apartment and the gallery space we are exhibiting in. To do this we use photography, film and hand drawings as a way of testing our research.
An important question this project aims to ask the viewer is
“how is your holistic visual perception of space different from the limits of what your eyes can see?”
Assuming there is no single objective answer to this question, our drawings and video are expected to act as an interpretation of this ‘holistic visual perception.’ The intention is that the viewer uses this reference point to compare with their own sense of how they visually experience space. This exhibition is an installation of video, drawings and a zine-like publication [which contains a text expansion of the theory and references used in the exhibition's research]. An original soundtrack is being designed as a reaction to the film, produced by renowned music engineer Vincent Oliver: http://www.lorecordings.com/
This installation and the associated events are a collaborative project between two recent graduates of architecture. As it stands Blueprint magazine is interested in the project for an article on creative entrepreneurial efforts of young architects.
