As part of DesignPhiladelphia, Simon Kim and Mariana Ibañez of IKstudio will be in conversation with Jinhee Park and John Hong for the event 'Movie Matter,' moderated by Alicia Imperiale. Though the moving image is not a native medium to architecture, the participants will demonstrate how it is being used to fuel the design process instead of just documenting it.
SsD will discuss how the primitive medium of the 'flip book' is used to bridge the gap between drawing and actual space. Instead of relying on the immersive qualities of film, this 'low-tech' medium brings the viewer in as an active participant so that space is understood as both a literal construct and a conceptual one.
The event is free and open to the public – Registration is recommended.
Thursday, October 11th at 6:30pm at the School of Design, University of Pennsylvania – Meyerson Lower Gallery, 210 South 34th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104
