This paper will present research that developed from two projects undertaken in the School of Architecture and Design at RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. The first project was a postgraduate collaboration of researchers in the Design Research Institute at RMIT University, the second was a collaboration with video, sound and projection artists. Both projects engaged with public urban spaces on a sensory and experiential level by using different principles and practices.
In this paper I will argue that space is something that is not framed in advance of inhabitation, as an a priori conceptual category. Instead space is a more elusive environment that unfolds alongside our modes of expression and perception. Further, I will demonstrate through two design research case studies how space formation is interwoven with the effects and affects of temporality, ephemerality, and the poetic and sensory potential of new and old technologies.
These installations were intended to extend the quotidian perception of the city as a physical and built environment through creating an awareness of temporal, ephemeral, and intangible elements and sensations.
