new materialism through design

"Diagram of the Field of Vision" by Herbert Bayer, 1930


The aim of this research is to extend the sensory perceivable space between humans and their environment through active movement, combined with addressing the issue of using the built environment as a catalyst. 

The attempt was to extend the visual awareness and trigger resonance between the human and built environment through different perceptive encounters of movements - passing by in cars, trams or as pedestrians.

This approach is based on Herbert Bayer`s (1930) "Diagram of the Field of Vision" and experiments with diagrammatic ways of thinking and drawing the optical range of human vision in space.
