#6 // Anna Liisa // Kaleidoscope



This studio has been a challenge in terms of thinking about place.

As an architecture student it is sometimes easy to get hung up on numbers and masterplans. To forget about the story. Without a doubt, numbers and plans are important. However, without the "softer side" of architecture - the cognitive experience, the history of place - the picture remains incomplete.

This is a storytelling game.
I have prepared fragments of the story, scenes from and thoughts concerning Lofoten. They give possibility for endless combinations, as if looking through a kaleidoscope.

DAV - NOTHING HAS AN END


Materiality changes – all the time and we can not do anything about it. 
The whole materialities are in a constant change. 
Human influence changes this constant change of materiality. 
No matter how much time passes – nothing will ever be gone. 

SNOW 
WOOD 
PLASTIC 
STONE 
HUMAN BODY 

These five materialities should be analyzed closer in this DAV. 

HUMAN BODY 
The human body changes all the time – it gets older and after a while the organs stop working and it is called dead. After time it can turn into ground or - including the human influence - it can turn into ash and smog. 
The substance changes and we can change the substance, 
but we will never get rid of it. 
The thick black line represents the human influence during the process of change of the different materialities. 
Some materialities cross the black influence-line: 
for example WOOD-> if we burn it, it turns into ash and smog. If we don’t, it turns into ground naturally. 
Some materialities – like SNOW or STONE cross the human-influence-line, but they are cutted, which represents the possibility for a human influence, but the change might and will also happen without it. ( Snow -> Water -> Steam ) 
PLASTIC is chosen the represent to „unnatural“ materialities. It crosses the human-influence-line many times, which shows that we can use and change it, but will never get rid o fit again. 
After 450 years a plasticbottle turns into ground again. With human influence it can turn into ash and smog. 

Nothing is ever gone. Nothing is ever lost. No matter how much time passes.

Dies slowly...

Dies slowly...
He who becomes the slave of habit,
who follows the same routes every day,
who never changes pace,
who does not risk and change the color of his clothes,
who does not speak and does not experience,
dies slowly.

He or she who shuns passion,
who prefers black on white,
dotting ones "it’s" rather than a bundle of emotions, the kind that make your eyes glimmer,
that turn a yawn into a smile,
that make the heart pound in the face of mistakes and feelings,
dies slowly.

He or she who does not turn things topsy-turvy,
who is unhappy at work,
who does not risk certainty for uncertainty,
to thus follow a dream,
those who do not forego sound advice at least once in their lives,
die slowly.

He who does not travel, who does not read,
who does not listen to music,
who does not find grace in himself,
she who does not find grace in herself,
dies slowly.

He who slowly destroys his own self-esteem,
who does not allow himself to be helped,
who spends days on end complaining about his own bad luck, about the rain that never stops,
dies slowly.

He or she who abandon a project before starting it, who fail to ask questions on subjects he doesn't know, he or she who don't reply when they are asked something they do know,
die slowly.

Let's try and avoid death in small doses,
reminding oneself that being alive requires an effort far greater than the simple fact of breathing.

Only a burning patience will lead
to the attainment of a splendid
happiness”
