Seeing the Unseen. Optic, Acoustic and the Space Between.

Abstract

There exist special edifices, such as Saint Mark’s basilica in Venice, that, by virtue of their geometry, interfere in space perception and annul any form of hierarchy among the senses. As a result, as the visual constrictions falter, a previously unexpressed imagery resurfaces. It is at this time that a whole world corresponds to the extreme transience of perceived space, one unveiled by the creative force of the invisible, by the power of absence and dream, where architectures far removed from the time and space of our perception reveal themselves to our senses due to the strength of their unconscious ties.
