PERSPECTIVE RULES! Architecture, Games, and the Materiality of Computer Sim...
The most direct mode of physical engagement with the material side of computer simulations today takes place in the interaction with architecture and games. Within this setting perspective renders not only an image of visual representation but extends and modifies our perception. Physics-based simulations, procedural generation, and augmented and virtual reality change the design, control and navigation of spaces. Data modeling and visualization merge into a novel tableau of different viewports and interfaces and offer a different perspective on the materiality of architecture and games. This leads to a new relationship between visuality, spatiality, and performativity of designed environments. The symposium aims to bridge fields such as media studies, architecture, design, game studies, and philosophy to discuss whatever happened to perspective in media cultures of computer simulation.
