Architecture Animated, bushes/horses

Nilsson, Emma LU and Kopljar, Sandra LU (2017) Making Effect, Symposium and exhibition
Abstract
Architecture Animated aims to explore different methods
of photography, i.e. photographing as a way of discovery
rather than narrative or confirmation. These are some of
our first findings.
Animals have agency, a will of their own and they take
shape and make sense by their own practices and by
others’. They open up for investigations on architectures
without a given sender and thus no given image. This is an
ambiguity we feed on and take as our point of departure.
Since we all want/need to explain images’ meanings, the
inability to interpret an image may create states of
unsettledness. Thus the viewer tends to make a semiotic
reading where the image refers to aspects outside itself.... (More)

Since we all want/need to explain images’ meanings, the
inability to interpret an image may create states of
unsettledness. Thus the viewer tends to make a semiotic
reading where the image refers to aspects outside itself. In
this study the semiotic readings are afterthoughts. The
images’ points of indeterminateness were initially
overlooked and we did not try to interpret the unfamiliar
shapes.
The intriguing shapes of bushes generated unexpected
encounters with other makers. The creators of shapes
have – to us – unknown agendas. But we ask: Do horses
want bushes? Do bushes need horses? (Less)
