By Therese Tierney
This visually beautiful, conceptually wealthy and ingenious booklet investigates the cultural connection among new media and architectural imaging. via a variety of fabric, from theoretical texts to experimental layout initiatives, Tierney explores notions of what the architectural snapshot potential today.
Within the book’s visually inventive layout framework, summary area engages discourses from structure, visible and cultural stories to desktop technology and communications know-how to offer an in-depth multi-media case learn. Tracing a provisional historical past of the subject, the ebook additionally lends a provocative and multivalent realizing to the complicated family affecting the architectural photo this present day.

From the Renaissance era’s linear perspective to today’s computer special effects, the apparently separate disciplines of architecture, visual perception, and media technology have shared the same philosophical territory. It is not coincidental that the same names, notably Plato, Kant, and Descartes, appear and reappear in treatises on philosophy, visual theory, and optics. In the last few centuries, visuality has also been increasingly linked to how we define the real. 5 To the neuroscientist, it is not surprising that vision should be chosen for this enhancement.
Neurological studies have consistently proved that vision has always been the predominant sense in human cognitive interpretation of experience. Research at the University of California Berkeley revealed that a higher percentage of brain functions are dedicated to visual perception than to any of the other senses. In addition, their studies concluded that humans prioritize vision over the other four senses. 6 We can conclude that the way we perceive or see informs the way we think, because the mode of instrumentalization frames our perception.
