Telling tales in smooth and striated spaces
Ayiter, Elif (2016) Telling tales in smooth and striated spaces. In: On Architecture: Scale Of Design From Micro To Macro, Belgrade, Serbia
This talk will be based upon my building work in virtual worlds. This activity incorporates not only architecture but also deals with the creation of virtual geography, virtual climate and a virtual ecology. This building activity will be considered within the contexts of the Deleuzian notion of ‘smooth’ and ‘striated’ space. The aim is the creation of a ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ that can also be considered to be a ‘storyworld,’ since one of the uppermost aims of the avatars who visit such locations is the creation of personal tales that take their impetus from the environment in which they are immersed. A number of such ‘storyworlds’ that take their impetus from the ‘smooth/striated’ will be demonstrated and their building strategies be explained through a visual based presentation.
