A visual score to map multi-modal perception in space. The study identified a new five-response mapping paradigm, which has associated the field to reflexive shifts in spatial attention.


A notational system was created that mapped the active fluctuations of environmental stimuli together with internal of-the-moment alliances. As a mode of framing, the reflexive ordination system visualized the field as a ‘privileged instant’ (Deleuze, 1986: 04) providing an in-between typology of formations and dissipations. Operating in a relational way, the practice pushed the limits of architectural representation, bridging the polar inertia of causal environments by amplifying the experience of time and space, thus accelerating perception to reveal the field as a ubiquitous mediator and propagator of affect.
