Purpose of the residency

Through a research of the spatial phenomenology, the social behavior into a concrete space, so its mystical associations produced by entities of representation, I am especially concerned on spatial areas, architectures, perimeters, which have an especial and/or limited way of being used, perceived, habited. For instance, Japan and some of its unnumerable traditions or cultural paradigms depicts some aspects related to my research such as Shintō constructions, Gagaku's harmonic sets, the Tatami mat -Jō- construction pattern as well as areas surrounded by strange energies or dark forces, whose access and spatial phenomenology are strongly conditioned, like Aokigahara Forest or Fukushima's Exclusion Zone.

Plan during the residency

My proposal for my stay at TWS Tokyo is 01 constructing a space device 02 that conditions 03 the mode of being 04 the mode of staying 05 the mode of perceiving 06 the mode of using 07 an architectonic perimeter 08 that would offer 09 an epistemological reflexion about the place 10 that would submit its environment 11 to TECHNO-REPRESENTATIONAL MYSTICISM
