This installation in the University of Waterloo School of Architecture
building explores the notion of implied geometries. It tests the
implication of inserting a cylindrical volume within an open, multilevel
space, not in its entirety but as fragments. It seeks to engage the
subconscious through the gestalt effect, forming an imaginar y volume
within one’s mind. Observed independently, the mass of the volume
is collapsed onto a two dimensional surface where the nature of the
circle is explicit. However, as each fragment of the precise curvature is
discovered, the implicit cylindrical volume within the space gradually
formulates, and the physiological sensation of entering and exiting the
volume can be felt.
