Part I: Artic Mass-Painting by Emergent

I have been following Tom Winscombe and his agency Emergent for a long while. Today's posts are dedicated to Emergent with, firstly, Artic Mass-Painting, followed by Busan Opera House proposal.

The Artic Mass-Painting investigates how to create a phenomenological building acting as a visual oscillation. Color and transparency are one of core elements to this proposal.

Tom Winscombe explores the combination of "CAD's personal, subjective, intellectual and cognitive processes" in its architectural projects. Here, cognitive properties are intertwined with environmental data and other proprieties to lead to a colorful pattern language.

The aim of this proposal, Tom Winscombe says, is to force the brain to hedge and guess in its "modeling" of physical reality. Hence this articulation of colorful and transparent patterning, architecture and affect.

Yet, the pattern is not to be considered as a simple visual phenomenon: Emergent intersected a map of structural stresses with a painterly sensibility.

Artic Mass-Painting demonstrates the idea that "assuming separation between the realms of building infrastructure and affect may be similarly unproductive."

Fluid, sculptural, innovative characterize this Artic-Mass Painting. It is of course difficult to define this shape since, such as species, it is in perpetual mutation absorbing all data from perception to environment.
