The Bookseat

“We cannot revise the plans for contemporary houses effectively unless we take a new look at the furniture question…Furniture, apart from chairs and tables consists almost entirely of storage space.And existing storage units generally have the wrong dimensions and are practically unusable. I condemn such waste of space.”Le Corbusier; 1930

Architecture

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.
