  • Object vs. Field


    los ANGELES CALIFORNIA

    SCI-Arc
    critic: Andrew ZAGO.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
    Xiaonan YANG: This studio brings up proposals for the redevelopment of the Jamsil Sports Complex in Seoul.

    While the site is big and urban, this design approaches the project as primarily an architectural rather than urban problem. The tremendous size of the project allows for investigation of juxtaposition and difference as an architectural tactic.
    Jonathan Lasker’s painting articulates the different differences and specific composition of different objects. There are always blurred lines between 2D and 3D, foreground and background, similarity and difference, object and field. These vague explanations make diverse contents find a way to compose as an entirety.
    Squiggles and grids are often play the role as field in the master planning, those meant to be as an infrastructure in the city in general. However the transformational manipulations of both squiggles and grids become objects in specific location in the city. This relationship, an object as a field, a field as an object, a field as a field, and an object as an object generates the different manifestation of the relationship of field and objects. As a result, the relationship of field and objects are no longer distinct but ambiguous.
