Aesthetics of Prosthetics

Cenotaph for Paul Virilio, installation (digital print, animation, physical model).

 

This project is a homage to one of the most revolutionary architectural thinkers of the 20th century- Paul Virilio, who died in 2018. For us, the writings he produced are complex, idiosyncratic, and crucial to understanding contemporary society. Virilio’s lifelong work theorized technology in relation to speed and its consequential correspondence to architecture. We are invested in his ideas related to the radical architecture of the oblique and his studies of WWII bunkers.

In collaboration with Alican Taylan and Can Imamoglu.
