In ancient Greece the original stage sets amounted to an assortment of unassuming structures placed on a raised wooden plank platform. This similarity does not reside so much in a shared identity of cinema and literature, I would argue, but rather is constitutive of late media more broadly. Doane, Mary Ann. Introductory Lectures on Aesthetics. Since architecture is cursed by the earth, one might, as many have, dream of regaining it in paradise. As cinemas specificity appears to be en route to extinction, we attempt to shore it up.
In the architectural caprice, questions are raised as to where borders occur: For Vredeman, it turns out, pillars predominate over walls, and transparent scenes with frequent diagonal vistas outweigh those of enclosed rooms. His space exists as one in which both eye and body are asked to pass through and not remain.
Fabullus, painter to the Emperor Nero, decorated the palace walls with ephemeral architectural structures fig. Painted with a loose brush, these works were outlined tentatively, and they give an impression similar to that produced by stage sets. This essential characteristic, picked up on later by Mannerist artists, was partially of practical origins.
Fresco technique, in its working with damp plaster, required a swift and steady touch5. A thinly applied film of paint was to veil lightly a colored physical wall beyond. The dream-like appearance of the frescoes did not come into being only as a product of technique, for these walls were regarded as manifesting a liminal zone between our world and that of Hades.
The buildings being depicted represented portals to the underworld presenting themselves to the world of the living. The ephemeral and provisional look of the figures spoke directly of the sphere or dimension of the beyond.
Shortly thereafter, artists ranging from Raphael to Martin van Heemskerck were to lower themselves into the cave to view the paintings. Fabullus, Fresco at Domus Aurea, A. Meaning and Matter There is more to this ephemeral lightness. As mentioned previously, the architecture of Vredeman is not one of walls and of enclosures, but rather of loggias and of colonnaded spaces. We are concerned here with more than a stylistic preference — rather with a question of the location of significance in architecture.
Spirit incarnate in phenomena would stand at odds with an understanding of phenomena as base material, in which latter case human work would give meaning to matter6. With Vredeman, the ethereal festal architecture appropriate for lovers who are caressing and townsfolk engaged in frolicking awaits spiritualization as well. Here is an architecture that motions toward dismissing a medieval understanding of the essence of building. In the middle ages, there was indeed something that veiled the thought of objects as base material.
As did rhetoric, architecture used material that already said something. What got in the way of the experience of something as matter was precisely meaning, for meaning veiled matter. In medieval times everything in a building would signify something. Today, a medieval cathedral could be analyzed aesthetically, but such activity would run athwart the intentions of its builders. Matter was symbolically 6Centuries later, this opposition would be considered in detail by philosopher Georg W.
Hegel Unlike Kant, he was not overwhelmed by the beauty of nature, and did not see such nature as a proper object for aesthetics. As beings in the world, Hegel would argue, we are motioned by Spirit to impose that Spirit on matter.
Spiritual content attempts to present itself as the meaning of the sensible. Required, for Hegel, is something like a deep affinity between human spirit and the natural. According to him, although aware of their distance from reality, human beings await a homecoming to themselves.
Nonetheless, with art left behind, the embodied self might have been being shortchanged somewhat as well. The biblical God transcends human comprehension through concepts or words, and so too does every natural object. Every such item is, in this sense, infinite. We can never fully describe a leaf on a tree, for example. Every particular would transcend our perspective of it. We all transcend ourselves exactly in our being temporal entities, in our inability to be transparent to ourselves.
Beyond this temporal aspect, self-transcendence could also be thought of in terms of the human spirit, and of our ability to transcend ourselves in thought. Thus, while a perspectival veduta ties us to a particular point of view, it remains possible for us simultaneously to imagine ourselves taking up our position from another point.
At stake within a body of work intensely involved with perspective is the notion of opening the architecture-that-is-represented to the infinite. We can begin by asking how that opening is to be understood, and how we are to understand the relationship between the finite and the infinite. Typically, in surpassing some entity, such as a picture plane, one reaches a kind of beyond.
Yet again, one might question whether this extension should be thought of in opposition to the illustrated matter and the temporal reality that got one to that beyond.
When a Vredeman perspective is to include human narrative, that narrative gives little more than its name to the title of the picture.
His scenes do not represent places of birth, but rather a world beyond, under, or over ours. This association between fantastic architectures and the underworld had also existed in ancient civilizations. There, imaginary architectures evoked a dream-like world with which embodied humans were at odds.
Only human shadows could find life within them. John R. Spencer New Haven: Yale University Press, From Shadows to Spiritualization--The Urban Condition The architecture presented in the works of Vredeman is an architecture devoid of shadows.
Although the buildings are rendered with attention to shade, this shading is nearly always at right angles to the perspectival construction. No regard is taken of the temporal nature of sunlight. Interpreting the action of the sun in this particular way emphasizes the world as receiving a light to which it is opposed. A symmetry within which architecture and light are contrasted with each other presents itself.
Yet true shadows give us a sense of solidity and let us belong to the earth by being bound to that earth. The pursuit of purity, often associated with form, can be thought to be closely allied with the loss of shadow. His architecture, having a body, yet casting no shadow, becomes fundamentally estranged within the world of the artwork.
Dematerialization here, as in general, begets spiritualization. Questions ensue: What might it mean to draw a perspectival setting without a true shadow? Are shadows nothing more than physical consequences of light being projected on objects from without? What would it mean for a building or a city to take care of its shadows? In part because of their binding us to the earth, shadows have conventionally been perceived as signs of true embodiment. This presumably wandering spirit will have become free from what attaches it to place.
Although the dispossession of a shadow does represent a certain transcendence and freedom, it does so at the cost of abandoning the interconnection between light and matter. In doing so, no longer engaging a light that shines upon us, we—or architecture—in our relation to natural light and thus, historically, to divine light, would become insignificant matter.
An understanding of how shadows bind us to the earth would parallel a recognizing of the role of buildings and cities in relation to the ground. From its outset, e. The city as heavenly creation sits alongside the city as product of the Prince of Darkness himself. A certain suspicion of architecture in the Bible derives largely from the idea that our true home is not here on earth, in this less-than-Edenic world, but beyond.
Cain, the agrarian son of Adam and Eve, the brother of sheepherding Abel, is mentioned in Scripture as having built the first city. These associations of the city with Cain the fratricide and not with Abel are worth noting. For one thing, the city gets identified with being cursed by the earth. Inasmuch as the earth will no longer relinquish its strength to Cain, he must turn to taking up the life of a vagabond. That the building of a city would be linked to being driven from the nurturing soil would seem, at first glance, unusual.
After all, is the city not that which grants a sense of rootedness and of stability? Since architecture is cursed by the earth, one might, as many have, dream of regaining it in paradise. Abel, in remaining closer to that paradise than his wandering brother, would then become our model. Yet in doing so we would pull back from a life world into a divine setting which has no room for architecture.
If there were no city in paradise, how could it possibly be reattained? Any dream of regaining a pure and ideal architecture should remain as such -- a dream. On the Global Hot Seat: University Presidents in the Global Did Youth Destabilize Politics? Reception and Perception of May in Greece.
