EXPERIENCING THE INDETERMINACY TROUGH THE BUILDING PROCESS.LECTURE BY FRANCESCO DUCATO/STARDUST*

 

What is architecture, what is engineering, what is art? We are educated in a system based in specialization, in separated packages of knowledge, totally subjected to an abstract idea of the market.

 

When you start experiencing the real creative work you understand that art is always related with a team work, a network of abilities and talents and the definitions are absolutely useless. For the creative work they are just a waste of time. In the contemporary society architecture is asked to be more and more performative and in the meanwhile the performative art needs to be related to a new idea of space. The reality is a continuos show and every show is a political action. Computers and digital tools are not something new anymore. They are part of our artistic language and active subjects of the creative team. They have ideas and the ability to build them. Indeterminacy is the transition to a new “state of the art”.
