Bitesize Lecture with Sonia Cillari
Sonia Cillari, a digital architect currently based in the Netherlands, presented her electronic environments and discussed theoretical investigations into human perception, non-linear movement and participatory architecture. At the same time, FoAM influenced the sensory perception of the lecture, by subtly stimulating the visitors’ taste buds. Sonia investigates the use of evolutionary and interactive digital processes in the design of dynamic and real-time systems for “performance space expression.” “Against the rationalist notion of objective space” includes the experimental study of alternative sensory and perceptual mechanisms in immersive and electronically augmented environments for performance and collaborative design. Quantum mechanics principle: an objective reality of matter doesn’t exist. What exists is a reality continuously created by presence and observations of man.
