Phenomenology of Space
By The Cooper Union Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture Students

Exhibition June 1 through October 31, 2019 at Governors Island Nolan Park 6B

In an Advanced Concepts in Phenomenology of Space seminar taught by  Ceren Bingol, 10 architecture students, Juan Cardona, Claudia D'Auria,  Yoonsang Jo, Jisoo Kim, Jihoon Park, Karim Sabry, Jeremy Son, Maren  Speyer, Tracy Tan and Brandy Vazquez, explore the intersection of poetics  and architecture through a series of full scale installations and moveable  objects inside the house. The projects reimagine and activate the physical  constructed space and perceived emotional or metaphorical space, while  enabling a collaborative discourse between professional and student creatives,  and the public.

Exhibition June 22 through July 14, 2019 at Governors Island Nolan Park 6B

Descension is a collection of aerial views of clouds downloaded from the  Internet and transferred onto sand bags forming a circle or barricade. Sand  bags are tools for protection and isolation. They are used in war and natural  disasters by the military and civilians. It is an inversion of the art historical  depictions of the Assumption of Mary into heaven ("...having completed the
course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory." -  Pope Pius XII, 1950.) It is a perspective from a flying carpet... hovering and  giving an overview. The Internet is also a way of traveling to new lands and  experiencing without the bodily senses.
