I Need Space
Dark Frames Series
Feb. 22, 2018
6:00pm to 7:00pm
Farish Gallery, Anderson Hall

Andrew Atwood, Andrew Holder, and Michelle Chang join us for a performative symposium "I Need Space" on architectural and scientific imagery at 6:00pm at Farish Gallery, Anderson Hall. The conversation reflects on the ways architects mine drawings and pictures for their epistemic and aesthetic values. A dialogue between Andrew Atwood (assistant professor at UC Berkeley), Andrew Holder (assistant professor at Harvard University), and Michelle Chang (assistant professor at Rice University) will probe each architect's use of objective and heuristic models in their practices.

Andrew Holder is co-principal of the LADG, Andrew Atwood is co-principal of First Office, and Michelle Chang is director of JaJa Co.

"Dark Frames: the art of image processing" is a series of events that reflects on the ways artists, architects, and scientists interpret images to understand the real world. In workshop, lecture, and symposium formats, the project asks: How can the visual arts use scientific models of objective image-making towards creative ends? These events are organized by Rice Architecture assistant professor Michelle Chang to investigate how objective and non-objective practices create different kinds of knowledge. 

Funding for the series is generously provided by the Rice University Arts Initiatives Grant and the Humanities Research Center. In-kind support is provided by the Moody Center for the Arts.
