Yellowfields collaborated with architect and conceptual artist, Dr Mathew Emmett, in the design of a means of visually recording the phenomenological experience of space, and how it may inform architectural intervention. An extract of some of the initial exploration, visual thinking and understanding of what was needed is shown below.
The ‘graph paper’ was designed to be used in the field as an aid to record and visualise experience; visual, auditory, olfactory and psychological (emotive) space. It was used at two test locations to seek a means of reconciling physical and psychological experience of space.
The finished graph (shown above) represents a person from above, with graphical areas reflective of the physical extents of each sense. These graphical areas then received a notation designed for recording the experiences at a fixed time and location. A new graph was completed for each new time and location. This enabled Mathew to carry out analysis in both space and time.
