Sample text

26 Systems thinking, as well as cybernetics, were at the same time making their way into other disciplines, including architectural design theory.

The viewing apparatus of perspective also worked on the assumption that space was inherently static, that it existed as a background or substratum for geometrically described objects fixed within it. The architectural image therefore was a representation of the stability of that space, and in turn exhibited a reassuring certainty against the anxiety caused by the loss of a divine worldview. This fixity not only evolved into what became accepted as normative vision, but also quantified objects and even people as objects.

Within the field of art, this loss was accompanied by the loss of an art-product produced on the basis of a desire to represent. It has been suggested that this loss was actually initiated much earlier in the century by artists’ adoption of a new technology, photography, which destabilized traditional art practices such as portrait and landscape painting. The Surrealist André Breton believed that it was photography’s indexical character that compelled a reexamination of art’s ontological origins and purpose as well as the grounding of the discipline itself.
