Beyond The Real : Domestic Interventions in Support of Digital Overlay Sangulin, Angelina


This project is dedicated to a possible reality, one in which the body inhabits the real, while simultaneously perceptually consuming the digital. The design process investigates the boundaries, possibilities and consequences of domestic design and architectural consideration within such a reality. Sensorial perception of space and verification of perception is explored within the most intimate space—that of the home. While pursuing practical design goals, the project places into question agency in the digital age, the idea of free will and simulation. If the simulation is indistinguishable from reality, does it matter it is not reality? How does one design within this realm?
