Palindrome Spaces (Revista ARQ no.92, EN, ES)
Short introduction of Erieta Attali's unique photographic work, at the intersection of archaeological, landscape and architecture photography.
This research attempts to show the equivalence, under a sociological reading of space, of two superficially very different systems: mobile location based games and Cedric Price's 1962 Fun Palace; a radical, unrealized architectural experiment. The aim is to understand locative games as a framework for interfacing with increasingly 'smart' cities, which operate on several non-spatial domains. PocketOULU was developed in parallel with the writing of this paper to serve as one of the case studies. Masters Thesis Dissertation, 2014.
