Perception of_ in Detroit

Project by  Raphaël Coutin 

Animated by 
Corradino Garofalo

Thanks to Telegraphy for the inspiring soundtrack

Perception of _ is looking at architectural shapes of cities, for instance in Detroit. Captivated by buildings, shadows, details, or terrain vague, Raphael has wanted to create an archive of shapes, with a series of prints revealing the architecture of a specific place. Much like a sample book, preserving essential features of man constructions, reconfigured into art, and treasured once again according to his perception. In order to bring the project toward a new step, Raphael is working with Corradino Garofalo. Together they animate those picture responding to the sounds of the town. The vision is now taking the emotional rhythm of where it belongs. By the same token, this artistic endeavor is intended to raise awareness, part testimony to our amazing ability to adapt, and part tool for architects to quickly understand the identities of places and to see the failure or success of design.
