# GUEST WRITERS ESSAYS 12 /// Motion Architecture: Breakfast in a Scramjet’s Combustion Chamber by Oliviu Lugojan-Ghenciu

This week’s writer for the guest writers essays series is Oliviu Lugojan-Ghenciu who just graduated from the Architectural Association and wanted to share with us his take on Architecture and Motion. Oliviu starts his essay, Motion Architecture: Breakfast in a Scramjet’s Combustion Chamber with an analysis of how animation are too often considered by architects as a mere additional tool of representation when it could actually be considered as a catalyst to the design. He experimented himself this process by mixing narrative and trajectories for his beautiful thesis project gravityONE (tutored by Liam Young and Kate Davis) that I published few months ago.

DOXIC SHOCK: Faster-Than-Light Neutrino Puzzle Claimed Solved by Special Relativity

DOXIC SHOCK: Faster-Than-Light Neutrino Puzzle Claimed Solved by Special Relativity | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

It's now been three weeks since the extraordinary news that neutrinos travelling between France and Italy had been clocked moving faster than light. The experiment, known as OPERA, found that the particles produced at CERN near Geneva arrived at the Gran Sasso Laboratory in Italy some 60 nanoseconds earlier than the speed of light allows.

Disquiet » 45 Seconds of Unaugmented Reality

Sometimes the most virulent augmented reality is simply reality itself. When Robert Thomas stops for a moment in London's Paddington Station and records three quarters of a minute of a big band's performance, the result -- uploaded to his soundcloud.com/dizzybanjo account for free streaming and downloading -- is a blissful murk. The audio is slightly muddy. The sounds are blurred, as if nostalgia were a kind of post-production audio effect, an effect intended in this case to suggest that the fog of memory had briefly broken and allowed through a snippet of antiquated pop.

deconcrete/columns of air and threads of cloud | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

Barefoot, one enters a white curved room, apparently empty. The most relevant objects seem to be the fire protection systems and mechanical pipes above and the air-conditioning grilles. There are also tiny rope barriers preventing visitors from trespassing a certain area, but it is hard to distinguish on which side of the barrier one should walk along. Am I in front of the Emperor’s New Clothes?! Then, the curved colonnade of white vertical rods becomes more and more visible to the naked eye. The rods are not attached to the walls and they do not hang from the ceiling either.

Pourquoi est-ce si important de "localiser" aussi obstinément les visions totalisantes sur Paris? Pour une question d’atmosphère et de respiration, et donc, dirait Peter Sloterdijk, pour une grave question de politique. L’illusion du zoom, en géographie comme en sociologie, a ceci en effet de délétère qu’elle rend la vie en ville parfaitement irrespirable.

On the way over to the west coast last week, I read Universal Foam: Exploring the Science of Nature's Most Mysterious Substance by Sidney Perkowitz. Amongst references to "applied foam science," "computational foam" studies, and even a "power-producing sonoluminescent foam" that might someday be used to generate electricity for the national grid, there were two ideas for future infrastructure that seem worth repeating here.

How to visualize Neo-Agrosophy and the hypothetical reterritorialization of a field when living off-grid:
< FieldMachine 1.0 [developed by FieldClub] is an interactive webtool which you can use to design your own self-sufficiency ‘unit’ based on what you would like to eat in a Britain without imports, and what kind of fuel you would like to burn for heating and cooking. The FieldMachine 1.0 allows the individual to plan and achieve recommended daily levels of essential nutrients. As your chosen options are entered, the FieldMachine 1.0 determines how much land is needed to produce each chosen food/fuel item, and also how many other humans could live in Britain if everyone did the same.

Vague Terrain 20: Ambient | Vague Terrain

Vague Terrain 20: Ambient | Vague Terrain | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

In recent years there has been increased discourse surrounding ‘ambient’ technologies and awareness. The latter half of the 20th century has seen the public and private spheres become increasingly mediated and our notions of environment, awareness and presence have been irrevocably altered. ‘Ambience’ is also a term connected to musical composition – from Erik Satie’s passive “Furniture Music” to Brian Eno’s late 1970s experiments in process-based work this creative milieu has formed the foundation for entire genres and working methodologies. Vague Terrain 20: Ambient aspires to peel back the veneer of contemporary environments and art practices to explore place, atmosphere and performance.

Il y a dans la cuisine de geographical analogies des aliments qui sont obligés de nous plaire: les sujets touchant à l’archéologie de l’architecture autrefois contemporaine (ou moderne ), une esthetique de l’usée, la rigueur avec laquelle il a constitué un album de 967 polaroids, réparti chacun dans des losanges à 9 faces, avec des photos toujours prises de biais. Et puis aussi le fait qu’il soit allé partout, pour moi le plus étonnant reste le Chateau de Fère en Tardenois, un village de picardie pas très loin de Bézu Saint Germain - enfin, chacun y trouvera son Fère en Tardenois - du golf de Fontainebleau à Detroit et du coté de tous les grands ensembles francais et soviétiques.

bourbakisme: Ethological Turn.

Suddenly the cyborg as imagined since the 1980s in theory and fiction seemed quite old-fashioned. This shift was not altogether dismissing the human being and its perceptive and cognitive capabilities: the two-handed and -legged animal was seen to demonstrate distinct powers in visual (recognizing edges, seeing contrasts, differentiating between dimensional entities) and tactile (the hand) faculties. Yet a much less brainy entity, the insect, was a powerful new kind of model for designing artificial agents that expressed complex behavior, not through pre-programming and centralization but through autonomy, emergence, and distributed functionning.

# DELEUZE /// Foucault and the Society of Control

# DELEUZE /// Foucault and the Society of Control | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it
The structuralist descriptions established by Michel Foucault about discipline are thought to be well known, especially by architects for who the book has been simplified with images that they can understand. The architectual paradigm of the panopticon (see previous essay) is quoted everywhere and became indissoluble from Foucault’s work despite its very large extents.

Sense of Patterns is an on-going project, a series of printed data visualizations aiming to depict the behaviors of masses in different public spaces. The visualizations have a focus on the patterns of moving entities in public like commuters, cars and public transportation vehicles as well as the interaction between these entities and physical structures like roads, sidewalks, buildings and parks. The project intends to provide strong visuals on what we all experience in our daily lives in different cities

deconcrete/london passwords | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

After the spread of cholera in 1854, John Snow decided to map the deaths around London’s Broad Street. The fact of linking the reported cases after the outbreak to the location of the dead’s houses proved that they had a strong link to a public drinking water pump. Those who had used that pump had a higher chance of contracting the disease. This primitive spatial analysis took to pieces the theory that cholera was connected to pestilent air rather than drinking waters infected by sewage. And as a matter of fact, it led to stop the practice of simply draining human wastewaters into the River Thames, which was to be drunk later by citizens.

Spinoza’s Two Existences | Any-Space-Whatever | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it
Prima facie, proposition 2P7 in Spinoza’s Ethics presents the counter-intuitive claim that there can be no ideas without extended objects accompanying them. That is, ideas cannot exist without correlative bodies. However, Spinoza offers 2P8 to address the possibility of singular things that do not exist, while preserving his mind-body parallelism.
