Frankforter, Kaitlin L. "Reconstructing Space" Master of Architecture Thesis, The University of Nebraska-Lincoln, 2017
This thesis will discuss spacial manifestations of the physical, phenomenological, existential, and imaginary.
I became interested in these spacial manifestations because of the lack of qualities I have personally experienced within “architecture”, notably local “architecture”. And I began to deal with these manifestations using 35mm film photography, for me using film and the camera allowed me to look at and understand what these spaces and qualities were really telling me.
This project has consisted of multiple performances with which I have deployed several traditional and non-traditional methods of working such as : slow moving drawings, full scale hard line drawings photographic diagramming, go pro and video recording, video editing, and video drawing and manipulating, 35mm photography where I slice and arrange the film to create visual plates that I expose in the darkroom using experimental processes, and I set up a full scale installation. I utilized the methods that I had available to myself, and allowed the questions I was asking and tasks I was performing to dictate the medium I was utilizing.
