Architectural Form in Motion Graphics

Presentation and Paper at S.ARCH 2020
The 7th International Conference on Architecture
and Built Environment with Architecture
AWARDS 07-09 April | Tokyo, Japan [Online]

This paper explores the use of the wipe, a
transition, as an architectural space within
motion graphics production. Exploring ideas
from zen, and Japanese Poetry, expanding on
the notion of the ‘pivot word’ in Japanese
literature, exploring the 25 frame wipe, as
an architectural, navigational device,
within time and space.
Taking the idea of the chronotope from
Bakhtin, a time-space device, and
precendents from the work of Samuel
Beckett, literature including poetic form,
and the structure of the traditional
Japanese Nō Drama. I will introduce my
current project - Recipes for Baking Bread
as an exploration into the navigation of
time and space, using the wipe as a
transition from early Ukrainian histories
in the 1930’s, and the present day,
architecture in production, and
contemporary work including Max
Hattler, the poetry of Rilke, Tal Rosner,
and Simon Faithful.
