Hawksmoor International Lecture Series invites you to attend the Sixth Lecture of the Academic Year 2016-2017
Bryan Cantley, Postliminal Fuzz
6:30pm – 7:30, Thursday 10th November 2016
TESSA Lecture Hall, Stockwell Street 11_0003
Postliminal fuzz – the residual tissue that occupies the space between architecture and [its] representation. Projects will attempt to describe such experimental phenomena as Glitchspace – the space of fragmentation and error, and the Plamipsestous Relationship – the defacing of architectural media and religion within the synthetic constructs of social media. Cantley will talk of the importance of the space in-between those things and places that we assign the most importance, calling to question the role of labeling and value in our naming politics. He will also discuss the significance of experimental drawing not as a representational tool, but as an autonomous organism.
Form:uLA is an experimental design practice owned by Bryan Cantley, and attempts to blur the indeterminate zone between architecture and its representation. An alumnus of UCLA, he has lectured at a number of architecture schools internationally, and has been visiting faculty at SCI-ARC and Woodbury. The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art purchased eleven of his models/drawings in 2001 as a part of their permanent collection, and was the recipient of a Graham Foundation Grant in 2002. Cantley installed a solo exhibition, and was an International Guest Lecturer at the Bartlett School of Architecture in 2008. He has shown work in a number of institutions, including SFMOMA, UCLA, and SCI-ARC. His celebrated solo exhibition “Dirty Geometries + Mechanical Imperfections” premiered at SCI-ARC in 2014. His work was featured in AD’s “Drawing Strength From Machinery” in 2008, and “Drawing Architecture” in 2013. His first monograph, Mechudzu, was published in 2011.
