Everything that white box isn’t

TEAM: Merve Şahin, Turkey

How are museums perceived?

_as static buildings

_as static buildings with ‘selected’ objects inside

_as static buildings that technological advancements stay as secondary accessories

What’s the intention of these three images?

_’the museum of now’ abstracted with the white cube

_the crawling network of curvilinear, expanded lines around the white box represents the virtual surface of ‘objects in display’

So…How current museum typology challenged is that…

The proposed design envisions a virtual network crawling around conventional museum buildings, creating a virtual environment that is perceived by the help of virtual reality technology

The crawling network is what the white box is not.

_It is not built so it is flexible, open to modifications and to various experiences

_It passes the boundaries between the stable and flexible & the observer and the object. It eliminates the constructed timeline and one way of learning and lets the user follow different kind of non-linear paths

_ Objects does not have to be physically present so what makes that location special is not the object selection but how all of the cultural, natural, social and historical elements are brought together to be experienced

_And it does not exist
