The project critically looks at the three
projection planes that geometrically define
the space in visual representation. Art, Architecture and Design have used
this volume as a technical lexicon to
visualize, project and communicate their
ortographic ideas to the world. After the 1st and 2nd Industrial
Revolution, this language has become a
standard and and emblematic source of
codification for the industrial market, as it
allows artifacts - be it buildings, printings
or tools - to be serially produced in
massive quantities at global scale.
By transforming these standard projection planes from ‘Horizontal, Frontal, Profile’ to ‘Pragmatic / Utopian / Emotional’ — thus creating a new metaphorical narrative for this aseptic, intangible place — the ortographic space now becomes HERETICAL.
The HERETICAL SPACE is a volume of freedom. A place for designers to be born again, far from the academy, far from the industry, far from the market. Inside of the heretical space, it is indeed possible to let go of our sins as designers and purify, in order to evolve into artists who are not afraid to express and manifest their utopian ideologies and deepest emotions. It is, as far as we can guess, a maiden playground for experimentation and dreams in contrast with the pragmatic apocalypse that we are witnessing around us everyday.
