Models for Opening a Passage 2012
Models for Opening a Passage explores the agency that everyday objects acquire when their trajectories (disruptive, unpredicted) intersect the architecture of ordinary and unnoticed spaces. The project aims to examine the way that their ambivalent encounter may release unforeseen possibilities that exist on the surface of our daily environments.
MOP wants to gesture interruption, infiltration, displacement, and aperture as movements that bring about not only discontinuity and rupture, but also the opening of a space ‘in-between’. That is, a place ‘in-common’ in which we communicate and coexist with an ‘other’ in the mode of a passage, an interval that gives shape and sense to the world.
