The Secret Life of Buildings
Sari Palosaari´s entry A Silent Agent Doing Its Thing is one of the winners chosen for the exhibition and publication.
A CALL FOR OBJECTS
This is a call for works of art or design that (i) might fairly be called ‘objects’ by the nascent philosophies of Speculative Realism and Object Oriented Ontology, and that (ii) will throw light on architecture as a peculiar set of objects, phenomena, ideas, relations, connections, skills, materials, obligations, and operations. A selection of twenty of these Objects—all physical and all, whether singular or configurations of smaller objects, falling within the four Parameters set out below—will be exhibited for two weeks around a three-day symposium to be staged by the Center for American Architecture and Design (CAAD) at The University of Texas at Austin in October 2016 called “The Secret Life of Buildings.” More about the Symposium here.
Stage One Jurors: Michael Benedikt, Kory Bieg, Clay Odom.
Stage Two Jurors: Graham Harman, Ian Bogost, Leslie Van Duzer, Levi Bryant, Winka Dubbeldam, Jorge Otero-Pailos, Albena Yaneva, Michael Benedikt, Kory Bieg
An edited selection of the photographs, drawings, and descriptions of the proposals and Objects submitted for exhibition will appear fully attributed in CENTER 21: The Secret Life of Buildings scheduled to be published in the Fall of 2017. Submission of material to this competition grants permission to CAAD to publish it in print and online at any time.
