Example text

Or, you could say with the help of Arakawa and Gins, an architectural body in which “the implicit shines out explicitly” (Arakawa and Gins 60). The Galaxies may appear to be discontinuous, but Kiesler doted on continuity. Any work of art, from architecture to dance, he saw as a means of “transfixing continuity” (“Inside the Endless House” 387), and he thought of sculpture as a medium for “condensing continuity,” in which “the artist creates a new gravitational field, into which the observer is drawn” (“Inside the Endless House” 394).

The ground plan is only a flat imprint of a volume,” says Kiesler, whereas “a house is a volume in which people live polydimensionally. It is the sum of every possible movement its inhabitants can make within it” ((“Pseudo-Functionalism” 739-40). To this end, Kiesler distinguished between functionalism and biotechnique: functional design derives from the traditional behavior of any tool; on the other hand, biotechnical design derives from the evolutionary potentialities of man. Functional design develops an object.
