Juhani Pallasma - The Eyes of the Skin ' Architecture and the Senses'
We share a similar concern to Pallasma that digital representation, whilst being visually appealing, is limited in sensual or meaningful interpretation. There is a strong argument to suggest there has been a loss of criticality in architecture, since the advent of digital technology in the architectural field in the 1980s. Our use of Pallasma's book in experiment three, is to anchor our digital experimentation so that it may become more meaningful than simply 'form generation' in 3D Max. Rather, through the use of an underlying metaphorical theme, predator and prey, or zoo-morphism, the viewer can 'experience' the architecture with heightened sensitivity, even though it is viewed through a screen.
