Constellation 2.2, Festival du nouveau cinéma, Montreal; visualizations

Constellation 2.0 from Jerome Delapierre on Vimeo.

Constellation 2.2 is the latest formation of the Constellation travelling exhibition in Montreal. The responsive screen gently holds to the existing structure of the Agora building at UQAM to create an interactive field of visualizations and sound to welcome the visitors to the headquarters of the 39th edition of  Festival du Nouveau Cinéma.
Activated with  a series of embedded touch-sensitive sensors across the continuous surface, the sonic environment designed by Navid Navab responds to the presence of visitors, wind, rain and surroundings of the site. The visualizations designed by Jerome Delapierre create a dynamic field that interacts with the composed sound-art and the visitors presence.
Constellation 2.2′s architecture hints at the importance of built-environments adaptability to media and the next generation of smart spaces. Constellation series are an attempt to create a flexible and versatile architectural infrastructure for media and performance artists to engage. With embedded sensors, speakers and video projections the Constellation series are flexible environments that allow for any artist with  any software platform bring the constellation to life.

AutoCAD; and the Representation of architecture

Architecture:(Latin “architectura”, from the Greek “arkitekton”, ὰρχιτεκτονική – arkhitektonike, from ὰρχι chief or leader and Τεκτονική builder or carpenter) is the art and science of designing buildings and other physical structures.

After centuries of change in building technologies and process of designing + constructing of standing structures (ie. buildings) the role of the architect has changed. Being a master craftsman with his knowledge being passed down from his mentorMentor a symbolic element that reffers to the linearity of education during that period and the hierarchy of knowledge.  during the dark ages to modern architect [reffering to the modern period of early 20th century] that the architect became a pop icon on magazine covers, the architect has changed it’s role in the construction process.
