procedure

Students will engage the site through a series of recordings that analyze the impact of a particular phenomena on the condition of the site. Using the assigned transects, students will track the interferences that create deflections, deviations, or deformations in the volume and/or surface of the site. Students will use a notational language of mark-making to describe the force and trace of the interferences, rather than the forms. Each student will produce an analog mapping that tracks change over time along a single transect.

  1. Each student will be assigned a grid line. This will (roughly) serve as the transect.
  2. Each student will choose one of the following phenomena: light, use patterns, hydrology, weather, sound, and geomorphology
  3. Transect will be measured and documented through photography. At least one set of photos must be taken at each grid intersection.
  4. Over a 2-4 period, document phenomenological interferences. This should be notated in plan and section, measuring as precisely as possible to determine the location(s) and trace of each interference.
  5. Using mylar, build a layered mapping of the transect using the following elements: photos from each grid intersection (individual shots or assemblages), timeline demarcating duration of site observations, and notations describing the space and force of phenomenological interference. All marks must be limited to lines and planes (these can be differentiated by size, shape and opacity).

“…to give these sounds to people in a form that has constant availability and yet is not a past event but something which is continuing.” Max Neuhaus
