In 1802, Friedrich Von Schelling coined the phrase, "architecture is frozen music," but in fact, architecture has always been represented as matter frozen in time and space. Propeller is a corrective for that common misconception. Using computational photographic capture technologies, our senses are amplified in order to obtain a kinesthetic experience of architectural representation.
Propeller is a selection from a longer video work utilizing indexical recordings of specific sites as portable yet still physically activated experiences.
