Systems of Exchange, Stephen Perrella, Hypersurfaces
Stephen Perrella’s hypersurface is a realitively new theory of liquid-embodied architecture to displace the nostalgia and re-realization being carried into the spatial conceptions of new-media technology. He doesn’t believe we should think of cyberspace with conventional assumptions but accept we are already inside of it.
“Hypersurfaces is the word we are using to describe any set of relationships that behave as systems of exchange.”
I especially recommend Hypersurface Architecture II which contains work and words from Philip Johnson, Gillis Deleuze, Lars Spurbroek, Karl Chu, and Foreign Office Architects, Bernard Tschumi, dECOi and Gillian Hunt.
Interface not only divides spatial realms but allows for the projection and performance of desire to cross borders. Interface negotiates the laminar flow of meaning, the becoming of life traversing an incessant problematic of language/substance in an endlessly interrelated information landscape. The screen that negotiates increasing quantities of intention is only a material artifact.
