title Douglas Dardenís "Sex Shop": Digital Reconstructions of the Situation of Architectureís Dreams
source SIGraDi 2005 - [Proceedings of the 9th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Lima - Peru 21-24 november 2005, vol. 2, pp. 649-654
summary This paper explores Sex Shop, a work by Douglas Darden. Dardenís work is grounded in the tradition of the architectural fantasy and its special drawings that no longer simply represent architecture, but are the architectural experiences in and of themselves. Dardenís drawings for Sex Shop construct the projectís unique imaginative space by intensifying the terms, techniques and technologies of that tradition. The paper initially describes Dardenís practice of using a complex figural and verbal montage to construct his projects. It then discusses the drawings of the project in the context of his unique practices. It finally uses unique capacity of the digital technologies to show the transparency, simultaneity and immediacy of the layers of the figural and conceptual montage and that allow one to inhabit and experience the project in the way that Darden intended: through the mindís dreaming eye that calls forth the impossible situation of our dreams.
