Automated Logic, 2006

In Automated Logic sections of ACCA’s walls were removed, excavated and rearranged to reveal the pictorial aspects and materiality within the original architecture. Mirror and periscopic devices were placed within newly created passageways, encouraging an interactive participatory experience. Each peephole or pathway was employed as a viewing chamber that actively invited a new perceptual awareness of the space and the body’s interaction with it. In a large box, made of the same material as the building’s inner layers, a piece of ACCA’s wall 'floated' on an illusory plane.
