I spent the last month writing about my process and findings. The full pdf of Motion Lapse may be downloaded. Here are a few highlights:
A photographic modeling tool that prioritizes the experience of architectural space
Motion Lapse uses a photographic tool placed in a panopticon
position that records stereoscopic, fish eye and motion activated photographs in plan view of the center of Rapson Hall courtyard. Through exploration of the panopticon, I discovered a modeling method that prioritizes the experience of space in early stages of architectural design. For the duration of the project, the panopticon collected over 160,000 photographs, which I selectively edited to create multi-frame photographs. These blended photographs compress time and reveal changes in activity and light patterns. Motion Lapse interrogated the panopticon, a photographic tool that represented compressed time, movement, change and 3-D form.
