Recording Device (Part 1)

The Architectist Records the City.


Recording Device, NYC Pier (1996) (This project was about recording an “image” or in my case “movement” and “image.” After visiting the given site and completing a thorough analysis of how a photographic lenses and shutter work, the idea that evolved was to record the movement of the adjacent traffic. The movement (speed and weight) of the passing automobiles and other vehicles that drive over the adjacent roadway would be translated to the recording device in the Hudson River which would in turn sculpt the pier accordingly. These are slides taken by the professor of the models I built to fit into the class site model.)
