thought it may be appropriate to introduce myself.
|I am a recent graduate of Architecture from the University
of Auckland, New Zealand. During the later part of my studies I have
became very interested in the interactive. Particularly in reference
to interactive spaces or installations. I have been experimenting
with circular systems of deformation and distortions creating chain reactions
of self-informing interplay and a kind of electronic avalanche effect.
I have investigated 'coterminous interaction', or interaction between building/installation
and the walker/viewer and the effect of the tactile experience upon spatial
I have worked with projected space and have toyed with VRML. My architectural presentations have been realised through 3d modelling and animations utilising StrataStudio Pro on the Mac platform. I also run a Win'95 laptop on which I do webpage authoring. I have done some linear video work and have limited experience with digital video.
Currently I am investigating ways of blurring the edge between what is actual and what is virtual with a view to utilising remote/satellite installations and streaming audio/video. This lends itself to spatial, geographic and temporal distortions and live/prerecorded constancy shifts.
My special interest is in architectural design - particularly fine structural resolution and mobile or articulated spaces that act as interactive, mechanical environments.
This all sounds pretty exotic; it's not really, I've only dabbled in it. I want to continue to experiment in this area. I have studied now for 5 years full-time and would like a job or a project or an installation or something that can give me an opportunity to investigate some of these ideas waiting to happen. What do I do??
I am leaving for the UK and Europe in 8 days time for a 7 week OE with the family. They fly home at the end of January and I stay on with a working holiday clearence for some time. Are there any opportunities out there that someone like myself could get my teeth into?
