LOVE.TOPO ~ PAREIDOLIA VIA GOOGLE EARTH
Pareidolia (/pærɪˈdoʊliə/ parr-i-DOH-lee-ə) is the tendency for incorrect perception of a stimulus as an object, pattern or meaning known to the observer, such as seeing shapes in clouds, seeing faces in inanimate objects or abstract patterns, or hearing hidden messages in music.
Intrigued by the concept, I embarked on an exploration of pareidolia on Google Earth through creating series of heart-shaped topography and faces.
THE NEW NORMAL ~ INTAR 2020
Graduating at a time of unprecedented circumstances, the Interior Architecture Class of 2020 embraces a paradigm shift to the virtual dimension. Faced with the challenge of designing an exhibition without a space, the seniors adapt a virtual site for the Senior Show. The RISD Museum Grand Gallery, the place of European grand masters, is transformed into an exhibition of the Interior Architecture seniors. The seniors’ full-scale Human Factors artifacts occupy the central space of the museum’s iconic portrait gallery, and ten classical paintings host ten new adaptive reuse projects in augmented reality. “The New Normal” investigates the potential of space-making when movement is not possible, adapts and rethinks architectural language in altered design conditions. Importantly, it is an invitation to congregate in new ways, to celebrate the culmination of our time together as a class no matter where we are.”
