EMERGENT FORM

A STORY OF HUMANS AND LIGHTHOUSES

This thesis explores consciousness and space/time relationship throughout the notion of light. It portrays the interchangeable notion of entities by suggesting that architecture is a slippery vessel of shifting consciousness.

I studied this relationship through the role of film making in architecture. I made a short film as my final project that portrays the narrative of this cosmology.

Light is the one bringing time into realization.

Light is a vessel for time.

The role of time in space-time continuum is equivalent to consciousness for humans. Without time, space reduces to still images, it becomes the simulacrum; a world without time and consciousness, a hollow world with hollow shells as humans. They are immersed in a distorted truth as they have chosen to forget about the whole truth at some point in time.

Time is a vessel for consciousness.

Everything is made out of the same things; as the flow of consciousness morphs into and out of different configurations, it forms temporary humans and lighthouses.

The human is the lighthouse and vice versa.

We are architecture and architecture is us.

Consciousness is a vessel for light.
