Step 1: Experiential Extensions Step 1: Collecting
Step 2: Experiential Extensions Step 2: Organizing Time-space
Step 3: Experiential Extensions Step 3: Extruding Variations
Quite often, I return to my modular setups of shapes and spaces to construct Variations, which formally express thoughts related to concepts of time, including the growth of human memory throughout life and scientific theories regarding existence. Quite often, I use animation to realize these Variations. Examples of this can be seen in my Walking Around Ann Arbor Series on my website.
Step 4: Experiential Extensions Step 4: Translating Virtual to Physical
Collectively, the images, virtual models, animations, and physical objects that make up these Variations of Experiential Extensions highlight the human desire to mark moments of everyday experience as meaningful. Furthermore, the process of moving through various media in these Variations stands as a metaphor for the translation of our physical world into mental space and then back out into our constructed environments. The images seen in this process are from the Looking At Clouds Series. More images and information on this work can be found on my following website: www.edwardjohnston.co
